Hexagon Ragasco Receive New Major Order to Qatar

20 December 2016

Hexagon Ragasco has received a new order for LPG cylinders from Woqod at a total value of EUR 8.9 million (approximately NOK 80 million), which is scheduled for delivery during the second half of 2017.

"This order is another confirmation of Woqod's ambition to replace LPG steel cylinders with the market's most innovative composite cylinders," says Skjalg S. Stavheim, Managing Director of Hexagon Ragasco. "The order represents an important step in our strategy of securing growth and improved capacity utilisation in the second half of the year."

Woqod has previously announced that they will be phasing out LPG steel cylinders and replacing them with composite cylinders. The bottled LPG infrastructure in Qatar is highly efficient with an extensive network of service stations, retailers and private delivery trucks.
