Quantum Awarded Hydrogen Virtual Pipeline Trailer Contract by Certarus for Delivery Dec '21

Quantum Fuel Systems (Quantum), a fully integrated alternative energy company, has been selected  by Certarus Ltd. ("Certarus") to deliver industry-leading virtual pipeline trailers for hydrogen in December 2021. Certarus will receive Quantum's VPLite-H45/40' trailers, which have a gas mass of 803kg at 3,600 psi (248 bar).  The trailers will be approved for use in both the United States and Canada.

"Certarus is uniquely positioned to accelerate the energy transition by making hydrogen a convenient fuel solution for our customers. We chose to expand our partnership with Quantum because of their extensive experience working with hydrogen, and the proven quality of their virtual pipeline trailers that enable us to safely deliver zero emission energy anywhere our customers need it," noted Curtis Philippon, CEO of Certarus. "Together, we offer a mobile solution that addresses infrastructure issues and makes hydrogen immediately available to industrial customers looking to reduce their carbon emissions and improve their environmental performance."

As part of its product portfolio, Quantum also offers a virtual pipeline trailer for hydrogen at 5,000 psi (345 bar) with a gas mass of 1,195 kg.

"Quantum's VP Lite45/40' for natural gas hauls the most gas in the industry in a 40-foot container and has an excellent track record. Using that proven platform, but modified for hydrogen at 3,600 psi, is a great starting point to begin transporting gas for hydrogen projects," noted Mark Arold, President of Quantum.  "Quantum already has a 5,000 psi version of our VP Trailer that is ready and available as the next step as our customers expand their capabilities and requirements to haul more hydrogen. Quantum applauds Certarus' vision and leadership, and we are very excited as we continue to expand our partnership with them."

Quantum has a long history with hydrogen starting in 1999 when they launched the world's first 5,000 psi hydrogen system on a commercial vehicle and then later as the first to certify a 10,000 psi hydrogen storage tank to international standards.  "We are very excited about our partnership with Certarus that leverages our decades of hydrogen expertise for new applications today. One of the challenges of the new hydrogen economy is finding ways to transport and store large amounts of hydrogen" added Arold. "And our virtual pipeline trailers at either 3,600 psi or 5,000 psi are an ideal solution to meet that challenge."
