En liten rundvisning på Hexagons Agility-fabrikk i USA.

Siden denne artikkelen ble skrevet i august 2018, så har Hexagon Composites kjøpt opp de siste 50 % av aksjene i Agility Fuel Solutions, og har derfor i dag 100% eierskap. Og har i år satset stort på at hydrogen-markedet vil vokse kraftig i årene framover. Noe som bl.a. skyldes hydrogen-partneravtalen med Audi/VW Group.

Agility Fuel Solutions (Costa Mesa, CA, US) has become a global leader in the manufacture of Type IV composite cylinders and alternative fuel systems in commercial vehicles. These include Class 7 and 8 tractor-trailers, refuse collection trucks, transit buses and medium-duty trucks and buses. When combined with cars and light-duty vehicles, the global fleet totals 25 million vehicles. In the US alone, there are more than 175,000 natural gas vehicles (NGVs, which also include liquid natural gas or LNG), with 50 manufacturers producing 100 models of vehicles and engines.

There’s good reason for growth in CNG adoption. Natural gas can cost up to 60% less than gasoline and diesel fuel and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30-90%, so the market for these alternative fuel vehicles is significant.
