Quantum Fuel Systems, a fully integrated alternative energy company, announced this Thursday it delivered industry-leading virtual pipeline trailers for hydrogen to Certarus Ltd., approved for use in both the US and Canada.
Firstly, Certarus is the North American leader in providing low-carbon energy solutions; like integrated compressed natural gas (CNG), renewable natural gas (RNG), and hydrogen. The company has the largest fleet of specialty trailers in the world. It safely delivers clean-burning fuels to energy, utility, agricultural and industrial customers not connected to a pipeline.
On the other hand, Quantum Fuel Systems leads the way of alternative fuel storage by designing; developing, and bringing innovative transport trailers to the hydrogen and CNG markets. Indeed, Quantum is at the forefront of the industry with decades of experience in gaseous fuel storage and systems solutions.
Consequently, and after agreeing on the hydrogen virtual pipeline deliveries; Certarus started receiving Quantum’s VPLite-H45/40′ trailers, which have a gas mass of 803kg at 3,600 psi (248 bar).
Moreover, Curtis Philippon, CEO of Certarus said about the matter. “Certarus is uniquely positioned to accelerate the energy transition by making hydrogen a convenient fuel solution for our customers.”

Quantum and Certarus expand their partnership
He also commented. “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.”
Furthermore, he concluded by saying. “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.”
On the other hand, Mark Arold, President of Quantum, said. “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.”
Finally, he said. “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.”
