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."
Innovators and industry pioneers will gather to discuss the latest applications of graphene nanotubes at the Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit (NAUM) 2018 in Shanghai, China, on 31 October. Visitors will also be able to see an on-site demonstration of the production of nanoaugmented products with real industrial equipment.
With its new ‘Process Live’ format, processing and manufacturing processes will become a visible focus of this year's Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November. Mechanical and plant engineering companies will get together in group exhibits to showcase their technologies in live interactions, enabling visitors to experience sub-processes in a larger context.
Hexagon Ragasco has sold 15 million of its composite LPG cylinders worldwide.
