Nikola Corp. via the HYLA brand, has announced the opening of its latest HYLA high-pressure modular refuelling station and facility in Southern California, US.

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

Complementing the infrastructure is Nikola's unwavering commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience, offering round-the-clock assistance through dedicated HYLA Ambassadors and Operation Technicians, ensuring seamless and efficient fuelling.

"We are thrilled to inaugurate our second HYLA hydrogen refuelling station in Southern California, marking a significant stride toward sustainable transportation," said President of Energy, Ole Hoefelmann. "Our heartfelt appreciation extends to the City of Long Beach and the Long Beach Fire Department for their instrumental role in realising 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."

Through the alignment with notable industry partners, Nikola is actively securing its hydrogen supply chain and expanding its HYLA refuelling infrastructure to support increased demand. This ongoing development underscores Nikola's commitment to accelerating the adoption of hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks and advancing the decarbonisation agenda in transportation.

The HYLA refuelling network plans to offer a diverse portfolio of refuelling 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. Notably, this expansion includes a recent 10-year agreement with FirstElement Fuel for a hydrogen refuelling station in Oakland, California.
