Fifty Hydrogen Fueling Stations In Five Years

Nikola And Voltera Partner On Hydrogen Infrastructure Development

Nikola, a global provider of zero-emissions transportation and energy supply and infrastructure solutions, and Voltera, a provider of critical infrastructure necessary to support the full decarbonization of transportation, plan to develop up to 50 HYLA stations throughout North America over the next five years. HYLA is Nikola’s newly created global brand that encompasses the company’s energy products for producing, distributing, and dispensing hydrogen to fuel its zero-emissions trucks.

The two companies announced a strategic partnership agreement to develop the hydrogen fueling infrastructure required to support Nikola’s deployment of its zero-emissions vehicles.

“Our partnership with Voltera will bring substantial capital and expertise to support Nikola’s plans to build refueling infrastructure to support its customers,” said Carey Mendes, president of Nikola. “Voltera’s expertise in building out zero-emissions energy infrastructure will be a key enabler for Nikola’s first-to-market hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks and fueling infrastructure. Nikola and Voltera have a shared commitment to the rapid deployment of infrastructure which is key to enabling the transition to a zero-emissions economy.”

“Voltera’s mission is to accelerate the adoption of zero-emissions vehicles by taking on the complex and costly nature of developing the necessary infrastructure,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Voltera. “By partnering with Nikola, we are expanding our focus beyond battery-electric vehicle charging in order to dramatically increase hydrogen fueling infrastructure and reduce barriers for operators buying vehicles at scale to enable mass adoption of hydrogen trucks.”
