Hexagon Agility, a subsidiary of Hexagon Composites, has received orders for Mobile Pipeline® modules and renewable natural gas fuel systems at a total value of USD 31 million (approximately NOK 310 million) from a major refuse fleet in North America. The modules will be used in mobile refueling of the company’s growing fleet of RNG vehicles.
“We applaud our customer for their continued commitment to reduce emissions through use of renewable natural gas,” said Miguel Raimao, vice president of Mobile Pipeline at Hexagon Agility. “These orders demonstrate the great synergy across our product portfolio. Our mobile refueling modules enable fleets to accelerate adoption of natural gas vehicles at locations lacking fueling infrastructure. Conversely, the growing demand for natural gas vehicles is driving the need for mobile refueling solutions.”
About the market
RNG results in the greatest reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of any clean energy solution available today in the transport sector. In addition, RNG is supported by a vast pipeline infrastructure in North America, allowing for immediate deployment of this cost effective and commercially available technology. Research shows that RNG derived from agricultural waste can offer more than 200% improvement in well-to-wheel emissions compared to diesel and is the only carbon negative fuel available.
According to NGVAmerica and the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, in 2022, 69 percent of all on-road fuel used in natural gas vehicles was RNG. This number grew by 17 percent compared to 2021 volumes, increasing 218 percent over the last five years.
Deliveries of the fuel systems are scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2023.
