TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Certarus, Superior Plus Corp.’s (“Superior”) low carbon energy solutions business, (TSX: SPB), announces it has placed an order for USD $54 million of Mobile Storage Units (“MSUs”) with longtime partner, Hexagon Agility (“Hexagon"), a business of Hexagon Composite. This is the single largest order of MSUs ever placed with Hexagon with deliveries expected to commence in Q1 2024.
As the industry leader in on-road low carbon energy distribution, Certarus enables customers without pipeline access to transition to lower carbon energy, including compressed natural gas (“CNG”), renewable natural gas (“RNG”), and hydrogen to help rapidly drive decarbonization efforts.
“We are continuing to invest to enable the adoption of low carbon fuels with the use of Hexagon’s next generation TITAN modules,” said Curtis Philippon, President of Certarus. “With the Superior transaction now complete, we are aggressively investing to grow as customer urgency to reduce emissions and secure reliable portable energy in a cost-effective manner accelerates. The TITAN modules have been the backbone of our fleet and we are excited to expand our operations with the new TITAN 450 that will allow us to deliver more gas with fewer trips.”
The new MSUs will be used by Certarus to transport CNG, RNG and hydrogen to decarbonize industrial applications, provide critical utility support during demand peaks and pipeline outages, and connect RNG production facilities to natural gas pipelines.
