Hexagon Composites Receives US DOT Permit for TITAN XL
Following a recently announced purchase agreement for Hexagon Lincoln’s new TITAN XL tank, Hexagon Lincoln announced the US Department of Transportation (DOT) has granted the tank manufacturer a permit for the TITAN XL.
The TITAN XL was first introduced in Latin America in 2015, and Hexagon says it represents the highest-capacity road trailer in the world in a 40-foot container, which is capable of transporting 525,000 scf of CNG with less than 35 tons including trailer weight. The ultra-light carbon fiber Type 4 cylinders are key to it meeting Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) limitations of several US states.
“TITAN XL transports 44 percent more gas than TITAN 4,” said Frank Häberli, Vice President Mobile Pipeline Division. “Companies will benefit from fewer trips, reduced operating costs and increased competitiveness.”
