Quantum Offering Its Largest Capacity Virtual Pipeline Trailer
Quantum Fuel Systems is offering its new VP-650 virtual pipeline trailer that will have what the company says has the highest capacity available in the industry at approximately 650,000 scf.
The VP-650 virtual pipeline trailer will be capable of moving large quantities of CNG to support industrial users of energy who are not connected to a natural gas pipeline. The VP-650 utilizes Quantum’s Q-Lite CNG storage cylinders. The tanks in the VP-650 are also capable of storing gas at up to 5,000 psi service pressure which enables additional fuel capacity compared to standard 3,600 psi systems.
The trailer design and integration will also house other new features, including push button shut-offs, independent lock-off features, and other technology to ensure a full fill.
Quantum’s VP-650 is mounted in a 45’ hi-cube shipping container and has also been designed for sea transport. Short to medium distance shipping of CNG can be more cost effective than shipping LNG and other clean fuels. Products such as Quantum’s VP-650 can open up a broader group of both domestic and international industrial users of energy to operate on natural gas.
Orders for the VP-650 are being taken now for customer delivery in mid-2016 upon completion of final validation and certification and permitting.
