Dray explains the station to visitors


The hydrogen station at Cal State LA is not just a fuelling station; it's a research facility used to educate students and potential end-users.

The station is located on the California State University - Los Angeles campus, near the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology. It is common to have not only college students touring the station but also elementary, middle, and high school students and industry professionals.

Since the station's inauguration on May 7, 2014, the station has already had more than 10,000 visitors, including international guests from Australia, South Korea, Germany, Brazil, Scotland, China, Japan, Russia, Canada, and other nations. Among them, 85% are students from local schools and colleges.

Both undergraduate and graduate engineering and technology students are involved in operating the hydrogen station. After proper training, students perform fueling, safety inspections, operations, testing, troubleshooting, preventive maintenance, parts procurement, and more.

Cal State students who work at the station are also prepared to offer guided tours, free to the public. To schedule a visit, contact Dr. David Blekhman at [email protected] or Blake Cortis at [email protected].
