Iwatani Corporation of America and Toyota to bring 7 new hydrogen refueling stations to southern California
Iwatani Corporation of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Iwatani Corporation and Toyota Motor North America jointly announced that Toyota will support Iwatani’s plans to expand the number of open retail hydrogen fueling stations by nearly 25% in Southern California. This will represent an increase of 6,300 kilograms per day of hydrogen fuel dispensing capacity.
Construction of the new stations is anticipated to commence in early 2021 followed by commissioning of the first stations by midyear. All seven stations will be open to the public.
The seven new retail stations will deploy the latest H2Station hydrogen fuel dispensing technology provided by Nel Hydrogen. Each station will have two fueling positions and each will be capable of supplying up to 900 kilograms of hydrogen per day.
This expansion is Iwatani’s largest to date single investment in California and will bring the company’s total global hydrogen refueling station network to 64.
