Media Release | MCH Group | Art Basel in Basel6.6.2020 11:00:00 CESTPress release

MCH Group Cancels Upcoming Art Basel Show in September 2020 In view of the current global conditions, MCH Group has no option but to cancel the upcoming editions of Art Basel in Basel and Design Miami Basel, which had been postponed to mid-September 2020. The decision to cancel Art Basel was made after extensive consultation with many Art Basel gallerists, collectors, partners, as well as external experts. The primary considerations were the fundamental health and safety risks for everyone involved, the financial risks for exhibitors and partners, the ongoing impediments to international travel, and the fact that the regulatory environment around large-scale events in Switzerland has yet to be finalized. Marc Spiegler, Member of MCH Group's Executive Board and Global Director Art Basel, explains: "We are aware that our galleries are facing unprecedented challenges and economic difficulties, and we had really hoped to support the art market’s recovery with a successful show in September

Agility receives order from new major global logistics customer for CNG trucks5.6.2020 20:19:33 CESTPress release

Agility Fuel Solutions, a business of Hexagon Composites, has signed a master services agreement with a global logistics customer to deliver compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems for medium and heavy-duty trucks. The initial order represents an estimated total value of USD 2.2 million (approx. NOK 20.5 million) with additional orders expected to follow. As a low carbon fuel, CNG can result in reductions of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to diesel of over 20% when using conventional natural gas, or 90% or more when using renewable natural gas (RNG) produced from landfills, dairy farms and other bio sources. “It makes environmental and economic sense to deploy CNG trucks right now, and the low cost and maturity of the technology make it possible to do so at scale,” says Seung Baik, President, Agility Fuel Solutions. Deliveries of the first order of CNG fuel systems are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2020. For more information: David Bandele, CFO, Hexagon Composi
