Worthington Industries Introduces Multiple Element Gas Container
Worthington Industries announced the addition of a multiple element gas container (MEGC) to its alternative fuels storage and transportation portfolio. Designed for long-term storage and transportation of CNG, these containers make CNG accessible where it is not available by pipeline.
“Worthington’s multiple element gas container supports our customers’ interests in offering CNG to emerging markets where natural gas pipelines are not yet established,” said Geoff Gilmore, president of Worthington Industries’ Pressure Cylinders business. “The MEGC adds another dimension to our onboard fuel storage portfolio and is part of our strategy to offer products for every stage of natural gas storage and transport.”
Worthington’s MEGCs feature lightweight, Type III composite cylinders, which offer dual benefits of increased payload capacity and durability. The Type III-based gas container increases the amount of gas transported with each load when compared to a traditional steel tube trailer.
Manufactured at Worthington Industries’ Slupsk, Poland location, the gas containers are certified to ADR/TPED and are available to global markets excluding North America.
