Growing use of mobile pipelines in Mexico facilitates transition to CNG


Hexagon Mobile Pipeline, a business of Hexagon Composites, has been awarded an order for TITAN® XL modules with an estimated value of USD 1.7 million from a leading gas distributor in Mexico. These modules will transport CNG to industrial operations and gas island cities lacking pipeline access. Deliveries of the TITAN®XL units are scheduled for the second quarter of 2020.

“Our high capacity modules enable our customers to very cost effectively transition to CNG from LPG, which often has fewer supply points and sells at higher prices,” said Miguel Raimao, Vice President of Mobile Pipeline. “We’re excited to have been chosen by this world class company and to see Latin America back online. Our Mobile Pipeline® modules are helping to lower fuel prices, while at the same time driving down pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions.”

The TITAN®XL is the highest capacity CNG module measuring just 40 foot (12.19 meters) in length. Hexagon offers a line of American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) certified modules that are ideal for the Mexican market.

Hexagon Mobile Pipeline has also received an order for two X-STORE® modules in the United Kingdom. The units, expected to be delivered for the second quarter of 2020, will transport renewable natural gas from the production site to the gas grid.  “Biomethane projects are emerging all over the world”, added Raimao. “Its potential to cost effectively mitigate greenhouse gas emissions is tremendous. Not only does it displace petroleum fuels, but in many cases, it eliminates harmful methane emissions. Our modules are a key enabler for transporting this zero-carbon fuel to the gas grid and industrial users.”
