Agility provides CNG products to the Indian vehicle market

Agility Fuel Solutions, a leading global provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and Advantek Fuel Systems, India’s leading provider of natural gas solutions to Indian automotive OEMs, announced that the two companies have entered into a strategic alliance to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) products and services to the Indian commercial vehicle market.

The companies will work together to supply the Indian market with a range of natural gas vehicle solutions, including CNG storage systems for buses and trucks based on Agility’s Type 4 composite CNG cylinders. The two companies together also have the capability to develop and certify natural gas engines for commercial vehicles and to provide vehicle integration and engineering support, installation of natural gas engines and fuel systems, and after-sales service and support.

“This partnership will bring great technology advantages to the Indian market, and will help make CNG the fuel of choice for commercial vehicles,” said Vishal Singhal, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Advantek. “We are excited to bring Agility’s market-tested, high-performance, and cost-effective technology to India and to open up more of the transport market to CNG.”

“We are pleased to partner with Advantek,” said Eric Bippus, Agility’s Senior Vice President – Sales & Marketing. “Advantek’s longstanding relationships with bus and truck manufacturers and engineering, integration and support capabilities will be key in driving further adoption of CNG in the bus and truck markets.”

What is a type 4 cylinder:

CNG type cylinders

Type 4 cylinders are mainly use for two of their properties, namely:

> Lightweight – Type 4 cylinders offer the lightest weight per unit volume of any CNG cylinder

> Long Service Life – Unlike metal cylinders or type 3 aluminum-lined composite cylinders, type 4 cylinders have a plastic liner that does not experience metal fatigue after repeated fill and discharge cycles
