Quantum Completes Alternative Fuel Engine Development For Mahindra And Mahindra

Stocks in this article: QTWW

LAKE FOREST, Calif. , June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTWW), a leader in natural gas, alternative fuel systems and clean propulsion vehicle technologies, today announced that it has completed developing a turbocharged, inter-cooled and electronically fuel injected gaseous fuel engine for Mahindra and Mahindra, the leading Indian vehicle manufacturer and industrial conglomerate. The base engine, supplied by Mahindra and Mahindra, was reengineered by Quantum, integrating gaseous fuel metering systems and state-of-the-art engine controls, to run on gaseous hydrogen, similar to a natural gas engine.

Mahindra Group contracted Quantum to develop and calibrate a gaseous fuel engine that met a series of stringent performance and emissions criteria. As part of the project, Quantum supplied its gaseous fuel injectors and integrated low and high pressure regulators, fuel rail, fuel sensors and advanced engine controller, and developed the engine control software strategies and performed engine calibration. The engine will be further fine-tuned by Mahindra in India and utilized for vehicle level evaluations and demonstrations.

"The program with Mahindra and Mahindra further demonstrates Quantum's broad engineering capabilities in developing advanced gaseous fuel systems and engines," said Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum. "This program has leveraged Quantum's two decades of experience in compressed natural gas engines and fully-integrated fuel systems, and working with leading global automakers." 

Quantum combines nearly 20 years of lightweight fuel storage and system integration experience with strong expertise in materials, system integration, vehicle control software, emission and durability testing, validation, and manufacturing capabilities. Quantum has designed developed and validated natural gas (CNG), bi-fuel (gasoline/CNG), propane (LPG) and hydrogen fuel systems and vehicles since 1997, during which time thousands of systems were produced and sold, with Quantum listed as the manufacturer of record by California Air Resource Board (CARB).
