Hexagon Agility, the world's leading provider of (renewable) natural gas fuels systems, confirms new orders for CNG / RNG fuel system installations on pilot trucks powered by Cummins' new X15N natural gas engine developed for the North American commercial truck market. These orders are destined for major fleets and cover two leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The orders come in addition to existing pilots that are already on the road with Hexagon Agility fuels systems.

Order books are now open
As of February, Kenworth Truck Company, one of the top three truck OEMs in North America, is the first to open its order books for trucks powered by the Cummins X15N engine.
Kenworth and Cummins have stated that trucks equipped with the X15N engine will be in serial production by mid-2024 with initial deliveries expected early in the third quarter.

Natural gas goes head-to-head with diesel in the heavy-duty sector
"The launch of the Cummins X15N, 15-liter engine will triple the addressable market for heavy-duty natural gas trucks over the next few years," says Eric Bippus, EVP Sales & Systems Development, Hexagon Agility. "This is a game-changer for our niche industry, enabling a powerhouse solution for Class 8 fleets traveling locally and cross country. The 15-liter delivers enhanced fuel efficiency and maximum uptime."

The highly anticipated, industry-first X15N natural gas engine by Cummins is designed to deliver a range of long-haul applications like diesel – while significantly reducing emissions. Powered by RNG/CNG the X15N is capable of meeting stringent EPA and CARB regulations in 2024 and 2027. With power ratings up to 500 hp (~370 kW) and torque up to 1850 lb.-ft, (~2500 Nm) the engine allows natural gas to go head-to-head with diesel in the heavy-duty sector.

Hexagon Agility expands capacity as more fleets are expected to "make the switch"
Hexagon Agility expects demand for the new engine will ramp-up gradually during 2024 and the Company's addressable market for natural gas long-haul trucks will increase at pace with the segment when this new engine is widely available.

Hexagon Agility's current capacity expansion program will substantially increase cylinder volumes for heavy-duty truck applications. Production start for the new line is set for the first quarter of 2025, to coincide with the increased market demand.
