Hexagon, which makes composite tanks, has launched Hexagon Purus, a business division for the company’s hydrogen activities and CNG light-duty vehicle activities.

‘We strongly believe in the future of clean energy – and Hexagon Purus is our response to support this transition,’ said Michael Kleschinski, president of Hexagon Purus.

The new business division will include manufacturing, sales and marketing, R&D locations and personnel in Norway, Germany and USA.

Hexagon is reportedly involved in a number of hydrogen development projects ranging from vehicle tanks for cars, buses, ground storage, transportation, marine, rail and backup power solutions. In 2018, the Company received two large OEM contracts for the delivery of hydrogen tanks to new fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) models.
