Headquartered in, California, USA Agility Fuel Solutions, has introduced a number of high-end technologies to run trucks and buses on clean energy in India. These include modular onboard storage systems for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquid Natural Gas (LNG), Hydrogen and Battery packs for electric and hybrid vehicles and low-emissions natural gas engines. Agility has the world’s largest capacity to manufacture Type-4 composite CNG storage cylinders at its facility in Nebraska, USA.
Agility believes that no single fuel can be the preferred solution in every situation; hence it offers different solutions for LNG, Hydrogen, Electric, and Hybrids. These solutions with integrated fast filling systems can increase the speed of filling in a CNG station and effectively increase the capacity of the same station significantly. Agility has also launched a line of configurable, high-performance battery packs for electric and hybrid trucks and buses. Agility can combine these into sealed packs of varying shapes and sizes to meet the needs of a range of vehicle types.
Agility is a part of Hexagon Composites Group a publicly-traded company headquartered in Aalesund, Norway driving energy transformation globally towards a cleaner energy environment. It offers a bulk of gas transportation solutions, including composite LPG cylinders for household use and hydrogen fuel cell solutions for different applications.
To make things move and develop the Indian market – one of the largest and most exciting markets for clean energy, Agility has partnered with Advantek Fuel Systems to design, engineer and manufacture engine control units, CNG filling modules, and CNG valves for the conversion of buses/trucks into CNG/LNG. Advantek currently offers its products and services to all major Indian automotive OEM’s like Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, Mahindra, SML Isuzu, and Piaggio. Agility and Advantek offer overall product management services to customers including professional after-sales service networks.
Agility Fuel Solutions is offering large capacity CNG storage systems with just four composite cylinders that give a range of 1000 km between refueling. Together with its partner Advantek; Agility can fit these storage systems in new buses, and assist in the conversion of CNG and diesel buses to CNG/LNG.
Agility also brings to India the capability to develop high-power natural gas engines based on leading automotive designs to power the new generation of buses conforming to the highest safety and environment friendly emission standards, and change the way fleets drive. This should drastically change the Indian market and help OEMs design vehicles with multiple CNG storage tanks without compro-mising the boot space. Agility looks forward to manufacturing these state-of-the-art technology solutions in India in the near future.
