Hexagon Purus is a world leading provider of Hydrogen Type 4 high-pressure cylinders, complete vehicle systems and battery packs for fuel cell electric and battery electric vehicles (FCEV and BEV) including hybrid mobility applications on light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, transit buses, ground storage, distribution, marine, rail and aerospace.
Type 4 high pressure tanks prove to be the best combination of weight, safety, efficiency and durability. Our cylinder concept is based on hybrid reinforcement technology consisting of combined carbon and glass fiber shells for maximum material cost efficiency. For weight-critical operations and pressures above 250 bar, full carbon reinforced versions are used.
We are operating the world’s largest and most automated Type 4 manufacturing facilities based on 60 years of tank production and gas storage experience.
With more than 1,600 transport modules and over 0.5 million high-pressure tanks for hydrogen and CNG in operation worldwide, we are the world market leader for Type 4 tanks and systems.
Being approximately 75% lighter than steel, our products help you to achieve considerable operational cost savings through weight reduction.
The corrosion and fatigue-resistant properties as well as a high cycle performance lead to a longer life time of the system.
Our tanks are tested and approved in accordance with established safety standards and all processes are regularly monitored and controlled.
We are well positioned across the entire CNG and hydrogen value chain with vehicle tanks and systems for cars, trucks, buses, ground storage, transportation, marine and rail. We have adapted our proven technology to a wide range of storage and mobility applications.
We are continuing to reinforce our leading position as the largest serial production manufacturer of CNG composite tanks for the automotive industry.
Our high-pressure tanks are perfectly suited for the storage and transport of industrial gases, and offer decisive application advantages wherever weight savings and corrosion resistance are key factors.
Thanks to our experience in the development of hydrogen cylinders for several OEMs, auch as Daimler and Audi, we are your reliable partner for complex tank development projects for FCEVs.
As supplier to the world ́s first hydrogen commuter train as well as first hydrogen vessel in the US, we are your reliable partner for customized gas storage systems for the rail and marine industry.
With DIN ISO 9001:2008, ISO 11439 as well as IATF 16949:2016 certifications, we fulfill all requirements set out by the quality management systems of the international automotive business sector.
Our Type 4 high-pressure tanks for CNG and hydrogen are available in the pressure levels of 250, 300, 500, 700 and 950 bar. Learn more about the technical specifications of our tanks as well as gas storage and transportation systems.
We have been adapting our leading and proven Type 4 composite pressure tank technology for a wide range of on-board, ground storage and distribution applications in the hydrogen industry. Read more about how we are partnering with our trusted customers to position their products for success.
Due to the lack of hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in North America, Air Liquide bought a 950 bar (13,775 psi) transportable tank system from Hexagon. This system allows for maximum volume of hydrogen per module and will be used to set up a mobile refuelling station.
The first retail hydrogen refuelling station is operated with a composite high-pressure stationary storage system consisting of six 950 bar hydrogen high-pressure cylinders developed and manufactured by Hexagon.
The Hydrogen Council is a global initiative of leading energy, transport and industry companies with a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the energy transition. The growing coalition of CEOs have the ambition to encourage key stakeholders to increase their backing of hydrogen with appropriate policies and supporting schemes.
The Natural & Bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) is an European association that promotes the use of natural and renewable gas as transport fuel. Founded in 2008, its 127 members from 28+3 countries include companies and national associations from across the entire gas and vehicle manufacturing chain.
The Asia Pacific Natural Gas Vehicles Association (ANGVA) is a trade association for the NGV industry in the Asia Pacific region supporting fleet operators, vehicle manufacturers, OEMs, gas suppliers, equipment suppliers, refuelling equipment providers, consultants, government representatives, and others involved with the NGV industry.
