Hexagon Composites’ subsidiary Hexagon Raufoss has recently received orders from PT Autogas in Indonesia for CNG cylinders to convert 5,000 taxis and government vehicles to operate on CNG.
The Indonesian government is actively promoting the usage of natural gas in order to achieve their oil-to-gas program goal to reduce pollution and diversify fuel in the public transportation sector. According to new legislation that is expected to be issued by the government shortly, all gas stations will be required to have at least one dispenser of natural gas.
“We are excited about the momentum of the adoption of environmentally friendly fuels in Indonesia and are pleased that our leading CNG solutions are playing a part in helping reduce pollution in Indonesia,” said Ragnar Holthe, Managing Director of Hexagon Raufoss.
PT Autogas Indonesia, a subsidiary of PT Draco, is a leading conversion company for natural gas powered heavy duty vehicles, transit buses and passenger cars. In 2016, Hexagon Raufoss delivered 1,000 CNG cylinders to Indonesia for conversion of taxis and governmental vehicles.
The new cylinders are scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of 2017.
