Alternative fuel vehicle technologies firm Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide plans to expand its manufacturing capacity for lightweight, polymer-lined onboard natural gas vehicle (NGV) fuel storage tanks. The carbon composite tanks used in compressed natural gas-fueled vehicles are needed for increased demand from North American original equipment manufacturers of NGVs, the Lake Forest, CA-based tank maker said. Quantum plans to double its production capacity. It will establish manufacturing lines in a 60,000-square-foot building adjacent to its existing 30,000-square-foot factory.
