Nikola, Nel launch hydrogen fuel network

Nikola Motor Company and equipment supplier Nel ASA will create a network of 16 hydrogen fueling stations over 2,000 miles in the United States.

   Nikola Motor Company has partnered with equipment supplier Nel ASA to create the largest hydrogen fueling network in the world, covering more than 2,000 miles and 16 stations in the United States, Nikola announced last week.
   Nikola’s objective is to produce hydrogen through zero-emissions methods whenever possible by using wind, solar and hydro-electricity. CEO Trevor Milton said that Nikola has issued Nel a purchase order for the first two stations, based on Nel’s alkaline electrolysers and H2Station technology.
   “Our teams have decided to double our initial station number to 16 by reducing the size of the stations, and create more hydrogen lanes,” Milton said.
   Scott Perry, Nikola’s chief operating officer, said the company has thousands of hydrogen-powered trucks on reserve that need to be delivered.
   “The stations are the first step to completing that process,” he adds. “Nel has delivered over 3,500 hydrogen solutions in over 80 countries since 1927. We are confident they can deliver.”
   Nel ASA will provide engineering, electrolysis, and fueling equipment for the network and Nikola will manage the plant, construction, dispensers and other station equipment. According to Nikola, each station will initially produce up to eight tons of hydrogen daily, but can be expanded up to 32 tons per day. Each Nikola truck is anticipated to consume around 50-75 kgs per day and the company will allow all hydrogen vehicles to fill at its stations.
