Michigan: plan for hydrogen hub on track


In order to adapt its vision to the demands of its clients and the market, the American Center for Mobility, a car test track, is preparing to build a modular hydrogen production system there.

The facility will host a “hydrogen hub” by mid-2023, according to Catharine Reid, chief marketing officer of Albuquerque, New Mexico-based BayoTech Inc. BayoTech has already signed a letter of intent for a long-term lease and is working with Ypsilanti Township, Michigan, on permitting.

Following approval, the business would set up prefabricated hydrogen units that could produce 1,000 kg of hydrogen each day, or enough to fuel 200 hydrogen cars.

As the fuel technology, which is sometimes overlooked by electrification, quietly gains traction in the heavy transportation industry, it signifies BayoTech’s entry into the market and is the first hydrogen project of its sort in Michigan.

The role hydrogen can play in assisting with the energy transition as a low-carbon fuel is enormous, according to Adam Penque, senior vice president of sales and BayoGaaS Hydrogen Hub Development.

Reuben Sarkar, CEO of the American Center for Mobility, stated that he views the anticipated new tenant as a chance to broaden ACM’s offers. The facility was established in 2018 with the intention of serving as the hub for testing autonomous vehicles, but it found it difficult to remain relevant in a sector that was undergoing fast change.

We are currently revising our strategy plan, according to Sarkar. “We extended our perspective to be more sensitive to those types of activities,” says the author, “just by listening to the different kinds of work that people need to get done, looking at the assets that we have, and kind of trying to understand where the trends are heading in electrification and hydrogen.”
