Hexagon Purus, a subsidiary of Hexagon Composites, has been nominated by Audi AG to supply high-pressure tanks for a multi-year hydrogen tank development and small-serial production project.

‘Winning this project is yet another milestone for Hexagon and the rapidly growing fuel cell electric vehicle industry,’ said Rick Rashilla, senior vice president of Hexagon Purus. ‘Our common environmental commitment now results in this collaboration project to realize the great potential of hydrogen fuel.’

At the beginning of the next decade, Audi will reportedly introduce its first fuel cell model.
