Hexagon Agility launches next generation Mobile Pipeline® modules with deliveries to Certarus (GlobeNewswire)
28 January 2023: As previously disclosed, Hexagon Agility®, a business of Hexagon Composites, signed a multi-year agreement in March 2021 with Certarus, a leading full-service provider of bulk gas transport, to supply newly designed TITAN 450 Mobile Pipeline® modules. Hexagon Agility’s TITAN 450 modules represent the next generation of gas distribution modules and will be used to transport compressed and renewable natural gas (CNG/RNG) throughout North America.
Under this agreement, Hexagon Agility has received a new USD 25.6 million (approx. NOK 253 million) order representing the inaugural order of Hexagon Agility’s new TITAN 450 modules.
“We are proud to receive our first order for TITAN 450 from Certarus,” said Miguel Raimao, Vice President of Mobile Pipeline at Hexagon Agility. “Over 90% of the TITAN platform has been redesigned. The new TITAN 450 delivers 25% greater gas capacity, while being 20% lighter in the same 40-foot length. We appreciate our long-standing relationship with Certarus. They’ve been more than a customer, continually providing valuable user feedback that we apply to the innovation of our Mobile Pipeline products.”
The next generation of composite gas distribution modules
TITAN 450 enables the safe transport of almost half a million standard cubic feet of CNG/RNG in a 40-foot module, allowing customers to deliver more gas with fewer trips, resulting in reduced operating costs. The new product employs the latest technology in Type 4 composite cylinders and high-strength frame design, while building on the proven simplicity and reliability of TITAN. As with the current generation of TITAN products, the modules are approved for a variety of gases including CNG, RNG, Helium, and Hydrogen.
This new generation module is fully interchangeable with existing TITAN products and reflects Hexagon Agility’s relentless commitment to safety. The new design delivers best in class Static Rollover Threshold (SRT) in the industry. SRT is a measure of a trailer’s resistance to rollovers.
“As we continue to grow and provide decarbonization solutions, it is essential to have partners like Hexagon Agility who are driving innovation in our industry. TITAN has become a pillar of our fleet. The new 450 presents exciting opportunities with its increased capacity, which will allow us to increase productivity, and it carries the commitment to quality and safety that we have come to expect from Hexagon Agility,” said Curtis Philippon, President and CEO of Certarus. “We are pleased be the launch customer for this exciting new product.”
About the market
Natural gas is a low carbon, cost effective alternative energy. RNG is the only available carbon negative energy source. It is being rapidly adopted to drive decarbonization of industrial and vehicle fleet operations.
Hexagon Agility’s Mobile Pipeline® solutions have the largest transport capacity worldwide and enable the safe transport of RNG/CNG or other industrial gases by truck, marine vessel, or rail - allowing users lacking pipeline infrastructure to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions quickly and efficiently.
With more than 1,800 Mobile Pipeline modules now deployed around the world, Hexagon Agility continues to set the standard for safety, reliability, and performance.
The new TITAN 450 modules will be produced at Hexagon Agility’s facility in Lincoln, Nebraska and are expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2023.
