The 40 ft trailer performs with 49,000 litre/12,945 gallon water capacity and carries 14,700 scm/520,000 scf of compressed natural gas.
Hexagon Composites says that the TITAN™ XL has high-volume composite technology that requires no special cryogenic equipment, parts or infrastructure, and makes bulk hauling of CNG more competitive than ever. In addition, its large cylinders are mounted horizontally, which minimises cylinder connections, increases cylinder rigidity, and lowers the centre of gravity for safer single and tandem operations.
"Increased availability of natural gas and competitive pricing versus conventional fuels accelerate the use of natural gas in applications the pipeline does not reach. This makes road transportation of CNG over long distance a profitable business in Latin America," said Silvana Cusati, Director of Business Development in the region. "We have more than 100 TITAN™ modules and trailers now in service within Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic and Colombia."
"We are proud to have the largest capacity product in this market," said Frank Haeberli, Vice President Gas Distribution Products. "We are working hard to bring greater capacity to other markets, including the United States, in the near future."
