Hexagon Composites’ High-Pressure Area has been selected to receive a development award for compressed hydrogen cylinders for new fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) models.

The value of the development contract is greater than US$10 million and is targeted to run until 2020.

“We are excited to be selected for these projects with leading OEMs,” says Jack Schimenti, President at Hexagon Lincoln. “This nomination confirms our lead position as a high-pressure cylinder manufacturer. The project will leverage Hexagon’s long term investments in Lincoln, Nebraska and recent strategic investment in xperion in Germany and Heath, Ohio. With our global footprint, we have the capabilities to execute the initial deliveries in existing facilities.”

Hydrogen can be used as fuel for power in a wide range of applications, and can be easily stored on a large scale. The life cycling properties of all-composite pressure cylinders, with plastic liners and carbon fibre structure, make them more suitable for storage of hydrogen than metal lined alternatives, Hexagon reports.
