The Ontario station will be capable of fuelling up to 40 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks daily. This station is part of a strategic plan to establish up to 60 hydrogen refuelling solutions in the coming years, with nine planned to be in place by the close of Q224.
Nikola will provide 24/7 support with on-site HYLA Ambassadors and Operation Technicians, ensuring a seamless and efficient fuelling experience for its customers.
"We are thrilled to open the first HYLA hydrogen refuelling station in Southern California, marking a significant milestone for Nikola and offering convenient access for our customers," said President of Energy Ole Hoefelmann. "Easing the transition to a zero-emission trucking future and prioritising access to a hydrogen solution network is our top objective and we're just getting started. Once the nine planned solutions are in place by mid-2024, Nikola will have established one of the world's largest heavy-duty hydrogen refuelling networks, providing customers accessibility at their current locations and along their planned routes."
Working alongside industry leaders, Nikola is securing a robust hydrogen supply chain and refuelling infrastructure to support its growing customer base. The continued development of the refuelling ecosystem is anticipated to further facilitate the adoption of hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks and contribute to the decarbonisation of transportation.
The HYLA refuelling solutions network will offer Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and other Class 8 customers flexible refuelling options, including modular and permanent HYLA stations, customer-owned facilities, and partnerships with public truck stops. Part of this network includes the recently announced 10-year agreement with FirstElement Fuel for a hydrogen refuelling station in Oakland, California.
