Nikola opens second HYLA refueling station in Southern California

Nikola said it is actively securing its hydrogen supply chain to support increased demand.

Nikola Corporation, via the HYLA brand, opened its latest HYLA high-pressure modular refueling station and facility in Southern California. Situated near the Port of Long Beach at 2267 W. Gaylord St., this new station commenced operations on May 4. Nikola said it aims 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, which 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,” President of Energy Ole Hoefelmann said. “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.”

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

According to Nikola, the HYLA refueling network plans to offer a diverse portfolio of refueling solutions to its 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 refueling station in Oakland, CA.
