Nikola has just launched 700 bar hydrogen mobile fueler capable of direct fueling FCEV trucks, such as the ones Nikola will start deploying quite soon, acoording to the plans shared so far. Nikola’s mobile fueler program includes its own mobile fuelers as well as a number of third party mobile fuelers, which will provide Nikola’s customers with a variety of flexible fueling options.
Nikola’s 700 bar hydrogen mobile fueler ready for the market
The mobile fueler has completed commissioning and testing and has been released for market operation. “Nikola’s mobile fueler program will be an integral part of Nikola’s flexible customer service in its early years by delivering hydrogen to its FCEV customers at locations which meet their needs,” said Carey Mendes, Nikola Corporation President of Energy. “Along with Nikola’s portfolio of hydrogen supply and permanent heavy-duty stations, these flexible mobile fuelers will ensure that our customers have complete coverage for their fueling needs.”
“Nikola has spent the greater part of two years developing a flexible mobile fueling solution which cools and compresses hydrogen to rapidly fill 700 bar FCEV heavy-duty trucks,” added Nikola Corporation President and CEO, Michael Lohscheller. “Coupled with Nikola’s hydrogen tube trailer, with a capacity of 960 kg, Nikola’s mobile fueler can refuel customer trucks back-to-back. This will deliver flexible hydrogen fueling solutions for our customers starting in 2023 and will complement Nikola’s permanent hydrogen fueling stations which are being developed.”
