Nikola Expands Hydrogen Network in California

Nikola Corporation, a manufacturer of electric trucks via the HYLA brand, announced the opening of its latest HYLA high-pressure modular hydrogen refueling station and facility in southern California.

Situated near the Port of Long Beach at 2267 W. Gaylord St., the new station started operations on May 4, 2024. This launch is part of Nikola's strategic plan to establish a network of up to nine refueling solutions by mid-2024, with a total of 14 operational sites slated for completion by year-end that include a combination of HYLA modular fuelers and partner stations such as FirstElement Fuels' in the Port of Oakland.

"We are thrilled to inaugurate our second HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern California, marking a significant stride toward sustainable transportation," said President of Energy Ole Hoefelmann in a statement. "Our heartfelt appreciation extends to the City of Long Beach and the Long Beach Fire Department for their instrumental role in realizing this vision. With multiple stations in the pipeline this year, we are steadfast in our mission to pioneer zero-emission trucking solutions and drive positive environmental impact."

Nikola is actively securing its hydrogen supply chain and expanding its HYLA refueling infrastructure to support increased demand by working with several industry partners.

The HYLA refueling network plans to offer a diverse portfolio of refueling solutions to Nikola's hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and other Class 8 customers, including modular and permanent HYLA stations, "behind-the-fence," and partnerships with public truck stops. 

The expansion includes a recent 10-year agreement with FirstElement Fuel for a hydrogen refueling station in Oakland, California.
