Hexagon Purus has signed a contract with a US hydrogen fuel supplier and hydrogen refuelling station operator to provide multiple X-STORE transport modules for the distribution of high-pressure hydrogen gas.
Valued at approximately $4.8m, the contract signed on Friday represents the first North American customer of Hexagon’s X-STORE line of transport modules.
The purchased modules are composed of Hexagon’s proprietary, lightweight, Type 4, 500 bar pressure vessels and are designed to carry nearly 600 kg of hydrogen.
Michael Kleschinski, Executive Vice-President of Hexagon Purus, said, “The X-STORE product will be an economic game-changer in the North American hydrogen fuel market because higher payload capacities mean lower overall transportation costs.”
“The X-STORE is a proven product line already widely used in Europe and the rest of the world by a blue-chip customer base.”
Hexagon Purus has said the contract also includes additional purchase option that, if exercised, will bring the total value of the contract to approximately $7m.
