To focus the pursuit of the growing market opportunities for renewable fuel solutions, Hexagon has launched Hexagon Purus, a dedicated business division for its group-wide Hydrogen activities and CNG Light-Duty Vehicle activities. Through this division, the company will continue to develop cutting-edge solutions working closely with supporting car, bus and truck manufacturers, fleet, rail and marine operators, gas distributors and refueling station operators.
The Hexagon Purus business division, which includes manufacturing, sales & marketing, R&D locations and personnel in Norway, Germany and USA, will provide lightweight composite high-pressure tanks and systems for storage and distribution of hydrogen, natural gas and biogas. “We strongly believe in the future of clean energy – and Hexagon Purus is our response to support this transition,” said Michael Kleschinski, President of Hexagon Purus.
The new division has already been chosen by world-leading car manufacturer Audi AG to supply high-pressure tanks for a multi-year hydrogen tank development and small-serial production project. At the beginning of the next decade, Audi will introduce its first fuel cell model.
“Winning this project is yet another milestone for Hexagon and the rapidly growing fuel cell vehicle industry. Our common environmental commitment now results in this collaboration project to realize the great potential of hydrogen fuel,” said Rick Rashilla, Senior Vice President of Hexagon Purus.
Hexagon experiences substantial activity in all segments of the Hydrogen business and is involved in a number of hydrogen development projects ranging from vehicle tanks for cars, buses, ground storage, transportation, marine, rail and backup power solutions.
