Iveco-owned Nikola Corporation has announced that California Transportation Commission (CTC) has granted a $41.9 million grant to build six heavy-duty hydrogen refuelling stations across Southern California, US.

The funds were allocated to Nikola and its sponsor, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), under the Trade Corridor Enhancement Program (TCEP).

Carey Mendes, President, Nikola Energy, said: “Nikola is thrilled to receive this grant from the CTC.”

“This award, in collaboration with Caltrans, will allow us to accelerate the deployment of zero-emissions hydrogen refuelling infrastructure, which is vital for the successful launch our hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks in July.”

Caltrans sponsored the application and will work in partnership with Nikola to deploy the tranche of six hydrogen refuelling stations.

This project will further Caltrans’ zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) strategy, it says.
