Agility Fuel Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Composites, has signed a long-term agreement with New Flyer Industries Canada ULC and New Flyer of America Inc. for the supply of compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinders for transit buses.
The multiyear deal represents an estimated overall delivery value of $75 million.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Agility to deliver clean fuel technologies and improve the value proposition for our customers,” says David White, executive vice president of supply management for NFI Group Inc., the parent company of New Flyer. “Over the course of our 25-year relationship, we have delivered more than 13,000 CNG-equipped buses with Agility, which over their useful lives will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 4.4 million metric tons compared to diesel.”
“Emissions from heavy-duty diesel vehicles are a major contributor to urban air pollution,” notes Chet Dawes, senior vice president of cylinders and Europe at Agility. “Compressed natural gas is one of the cleanest-burning fuels available. We’re happy to be a partner with New Flyer in delivering clean air to the communities where these fleets operate.”
