7/10/2005Lincoln Composites, a subsidiary of Hexagon Composites ASA has received a USD 2.1 million order from Energy Developments Limited for Tuffshell cylinders. These cylinders are for bulk hauling compressed natural gas 400 km in the Northern Territory of Australia. Delivery for the cylinders is scheduled for the first half of 2006. This order represents Lincoln Composites’ entry into the market for bulk hauling of compressed gas, including natural gas and hydrogen. These lightweight cylinders are the largest composite CNG cylinders currently available, making them a natural fit for any bulk hauling application. For this initial order the Tuffshell cylinders will be mounted on trailers. Each Tuffshell L cylinder saves as much as 75% of the weight of conventional steel cylinders. The large capacities of the cylinders provides several cost and weight advantages as these Tuffshell tanks allow the end user to use fewer tanks to carry the required amount of gas. Fewer tanks consequently translate to a reduction in valves, fittings and mounting hardware, and this reduction in components is a further cost and weight savings. “Our enabling technology provides a significant competitive advantage in a traditionally steel dominated market. With cost, weight and volume advantages of our Tuffshell tanks, we have every reason to believe we will be successful in this market,” according to William Dick, President of Lincoln Composites. “We intend to aggressively pursue this market worldwide.”https://www.nacomposites.com/delivering-performance/page.asp?issueid=18&page=feature

12/22/2015Don Baldwin, Hexagon Composites: “Unfortunately, we have had several incidents. Given that we have more than 500 units in service, internationally, and the amount of miles that pile up, ... At this time we are aware of about 15 traffic accidents involving Titan systems, a few tipovers, and a couple of fairly severe rollover incidents. The good news is, in none of these cases so far has there been any fire, all of the tanks were retained in their mountings, and there was no release of the natural gas lading.

Truck then moved into paint "bake room" where it was heated to 200'F. Tank pressure far exceeded design specification, and a fitting failed causing tanks to vent. Building fans rapidly spead gas throughout the building. Gas found an ignition souce and exploded. Several people suffered severe burns. Case is presently being litigated.
