“Hexagon Purus’ lightweight type 4 composite cylinders allow for very high payloads when transporting gas, reducing total cost of ownership for our customers,” says Hartmut Fehrenbach, Vice President Hydrogen Distribution at Hexagon Purus. “We are proud to support our clients in the replacement of Type 1 steel trailer fleets in the industrial gas segment and build hydrogen mobility infrastructure in Europe - and now, for the first-time including Spain and Switzerland.”

Hexagon Purus’ new 381 bar X-STORE type 4 composite cylinder meets the new European standard, EN 17339, and is among the most efficient gas transport cylinders available worldwide. Its higher payload capacity reduces overall transportation costs.


The cylinders will be delivered in the second and third quarters of 2021.
