 Nikola Corporation (Nasdaq: NKLA), a global leader in zero-emissions transportation and energy supply and infrastructure solutions, via the HYLA brand, proudly announces the opening of its latest HYLA high-pressure modular refueling station and facility in Southern Calif.

Situated near the Port of Long Beach at 2267 W. Gaylord St., this new station commenced operations on May 4, 2024. This launch is yet another pivotal milestone in Nikola’s strategic plan, aiming 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.

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 fueling.

“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. “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 is actively securing its hydrogen supply chain and expanding its HYLA refueling infrastructure to support increased demand.
