Hexagon Ragasco, (Norway) 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 on 17th 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. 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.
