Apr 23, 2024 - Press Release

Oslo, Norway, 23 April 2024: Hexagon Ragasco, a business of Hexagon Composites, and Linde, the leading global industrial gas company and premier LPG marketer in Norway, launched Linktra® Smart cylinder nationwide in Norway 17 April 2024.

The launch follows a regional pilot program that took place during the summer of 2023 in the city of Oslo and its surrounding area. The Linktra® Smart cylinders, deployed under the name AGA® Smart Cylinders, received great reviews from consumers.

Bringing LPG technology to the digital age

Hexagon Ragasco’s Linktra® Smart cylinders bring LPG technology to the digital age. It comes with an “Internet of Things” (IoT) offer that enables the connection of the cylinder to consumers’ mobile phones, allowing consumers to quickly see gas level and receive push notifications when it is time to refill. Linktra® also connects to the IT systems of LPG distributors, providing insight into consumer-usage patterns, enabling optimized logistics – which means the cylinder is always in stock when a customer is ready to refill.

“Linde’s launch of the Linktra® Smart cylinder has strengthened our two-decade long partnership with Linde, and we are thrilled to contribute to bringing new technology to local LPG users in Norway,” says Skjalg S. Stavheim, President, Hexagon Ragasco. “The introduction of this new product further strengthens our reputation for delivering innovation, safety, and quality. Together with Linde, a pioneer in the Nordic countries, we will continue to raise the standard for user-friendly LPG.”

“The AGA® Smart Cylinder allows users to have full control of the LPG cylinder gas level for their domestic or leisure activities,” says Morten Roness, Head of Consumer Sales Norway, Linde. “At the same time, we at Linde, obtain real time data to optimize our logistic operations and product availability for customers.”

The cylinders are available in most of Linde’s distribution points and vending machines nationwide.
