Nikola Corporation, a developer of zero-emissions transportation, energy supply, and infrastructure solutions through the HYLA brand, has unveiled its second HYLA high-pressure modular refueling station and facility near the Port of Long Beach in Southern California.

Nikola aims to establish a network of up to nine refueling solutions by mid-2024, with 14 operational sites expected to be completed by the end of 2024. This includes a combination of HYLA modular fuelers and partner stations such as FirstElement Fuels in the Port of Oakland.

Nikola is expanding its HYLA refueling infrastructure to support increased hydrogen demand. This ongoing development highlights the company’s goal to adopt hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks and improve the decarbonization agenda in transportation.

"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. "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."

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.
