Irvine CA (SPX) Aug 01, 2008
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide has announced that it has designed, developed and shipped a new generation of ultra light weight advanced composite hydrogen storage units for Suzuki Motor Corporation's Fuel Cell Vehicle Program.

These unique systems for Suzuki were developed, analyzed, and tested to meet the Japanese Government requirements.

The higher fuel density capability of Quantum's hydrogen tank systems allows efficient on-board packaging without intrusion into passenger and cargo areas, while providing uncompromising range.

Quantum's new generation of Type IV (polymer lined, all composite) ultra-light weight tank has been successfully tested and validated to operating conditions beyond current industry and government standards.

High capacity of the Quantum systems allow extended driving range. These systems exhibit exceptional fast-fill performance and low permeation levels.

Quantum was also able to achieve further reductions in material cost and improvements in both material utilization and manufacturing efficiency compared with previous generation tanks.

Quantum Hydrogen tanks are in use by major Automotive OEMs worldwide and have a history of exceeding customer expectation in many areas of their performance.
