Quantum Fuel Systems (Quantum), a fully integrated alternative energy company, delivered industry-leading virtual pipeline trailers for hydrogen to Certarus Ltd. ("Certarus") in December 2021. Certarus received Quantum's VPLite-H45/40' trailers, which have a gas mass of 803kg at 3,600 psi (248 bar). The trailers are 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 for customers across North America that support our mission to help make hydrogen fuel a safe, affordable, and convenient option for companies looking to reduce carbon emissions and achieve ESG goals across multiple industry sectors."
"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. "Our partnership with Certarus on hydrogen is just the beginning, and we look forward to continuing to support Certarus' vision and leadership, as well as work with other companies interested in mobile hydrogen as a low-carbon fuel solution."
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.
