Hexagon Ragasco Wins LPG Cylinder Order from Iraq

15 August 2017

Hexagon Ragasco, Norway, has received an order for LPG cylinders from Gas Filling Company (GFC), Iraq, worth a total of around US$15 million.

Deliveries are scheduled to commence in fourth quarter of 2017 and continue through the first quarter of 2018.

With this order, Iraq is expanding its already large fleet of composite LPG cylinders for the domestic market.

"The Middle East is an important market for us," says Skjalg S. Stavheim, Managing Director of Hexagon Ragasco. "The region continues to invest in lightweight composite cylinders that will help to make domestic use of LPG safer and more user-friendly."
