Quantum has received a contract to develop a specialized 5,000 psi CNG tank specifically configured for an integrated storage system for heavy duty mining trucks in Australia. The tank will be developed for an international industrial firm that supports mining and other manufacturing applications leveraging compressed natural gas.

The mining applications require availability of natural gas using virtual pipeline delivery methods and the use of CNG tanks for mining applications, which complements Quantum's recently announced commercial entry into the virtual pipeline industry.

The tank under development will be optimized to maximize CNG payload in this mining application. The Q-Lite tank technology is available for a multitude of CNG applications, according to the company.
