The development agreement is valued at $1.625 million, and as part of the agreement, a production order for hydrogen tanks will follow shortly for start of delivery in the second half of 2020. In addition, the agreement includes a multi-year production schedule beyond 2020.
The new partnership leverages the company’s expertise to provide critical infrastructure technologies to help enable the hydrogen economy, according to Mark Arold, President, Quantum Fuel Systems LLC.
