Hexagon Improves Range and Payload for Heavy-Duty Fleets with Lighter, Higher Capacity Tank

24 February 2015

Less than a year after the joint venture with Agility Fuel Systems was announced, Hexagon Lincoln, has produced it’s largest capacity and lightest weight vehicle tank to date.

Hexagon explains that the new 27 in/673 mm diameter tank is featured in Agility's 160 DGE Behind-the-Cab compressed natural gas (CNG) system, which was introduced at the Natural Gas Vehicle Conference and Expo in November 2014.

"Working together to bring product innovations to the market is a top objective of our joint venture and this new cylinder represents the first fruits of these efforts," said Chet Dawes, Vice President of CNG Automotive Products. "We are committed to continued innovation and highly-engineered solutions for the marketplace."

Hexagon says it has received orders valued at approximately USD 7 million (approx. NOK 53 million) for the new tank and has begun delivery for fuel system orders for several Class 8 truck fleets.
