OSLO: NG Advantage, a provider of virtual pipeline services in the U.S., has awarded a $4.2 million order for TITAN gas transport modules to Hexagon Mobile Pipeline, a business of Hexagon Composites.

Hexagon’s Mobile Pipeline modules will support NG Advantage’s continued expansion in the northeastern U.S. and help facilitate the delivery of compressed natural gas to natural gas utilities, hospitals, and large industrial end users.

NG Advantage is a leading provider of virtual pipeline service in the country and pioneered trucking both compressed natural gas and renewable natural gas using one of the largest virtual pipeline trailer fleets in the U.S.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with NG Advantage, a leading player and owner of mobile pipeline modules in the U.S.,” says Jon A. Smith, President of Hexagon Mobile Pipeline. “We continue to see new energy transformation opportunities for CNG to meet the growing demand for cleaner and more efficient energy use, as well as accelerate carbon reduction for our partners.”

“We took delivery of our first TITAN module in 2012 and built NG Advantage into a leading mobile pipeline service provider. Hexagon has been a trusted partner in our growth and TITAN laid the foundation of our fleet,” says Rico Biasetti, CEO of NG Advantage.

Biasetti adds, the TITAN module’s leading-edge technology enables us to safely and reliably deliver CNG to our customers.”

Since its inception, NG Advantage has delivered over 19 billion cubic feet (538million cubic meters) of CNG to customers in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont. By making the switch to natural gas from other fuels, customers have substantially reduced their CO2 emissions. In 2018, NG Advantage’s customers avoided the emission of 163,770,944 pounds (74,285 metric tons) of CO2, the equivalent of taking 15,772 cars off the road.

The order includes delivery of TITAN 53 modules as well as rental of TITAN XL modules. Deliveries of the TITAN modules are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019.
