Iwatani Corporation of America, a subsidiary of Iwatani Corporation, has today (24th March) placed an order with Nel Hydrogen Fuelling, a division of Nel Asa, for four H2Stations to fuel light-duty vehicles in California.
The order for the four H2Station™ modules is around NOK 40 million (US$ 4.65 million). The hydrogen refuelling stations are supported by grant funding under the California Energy Commission.
Ulrik Torp Svendsen, Global Key Account Manager, Nel Hydrogen Fueling, said, “With our new Nel Inc. entity currently based in the Los Angeles area, we now look forward to expanding our business in South California and supporting Iwatani.”
In June 2020, Nel also received a purchase order from Iwatani Corporation of America for 14 H2Station™ units for installation in 2021 on 7 sites in California intended to fuel passenger vehicles. The order was valued at NOK 150 million (US$ 17.4 million). The order was part of the deal between Iwatani Corporation of America and Toyota Motor North America, where Toyota agreed to support Iwatani’s plans to expand the number of retail hydrogen fuelling stations by nearly 25% in Southern California, resulting in an increase of 6,300 kg/day of hydrogen fuel dispensing capacity.
