The BayoGaaS Hydrogen Hub took ten months to build, utilising materials and services supplied by more than twenty local companies and a workforce contributing over 42,000 labour hours. The facility is expected to create up to ten permanent local jobs and generate substantial state tax revenue.

“This landmark achievement represents a significant step forward in our company’s mission to establish a network of localised hydrogen production hubs throughout the United States” said BayoTech President and CEO Mo Vargas. “BayoTech takes immense pride in its role as a pioneering force to make hydrogen supply more localised, accessible and reliable for our customers,”  said “These hubs will not just produce hydrogen; they will produce opportunities, jobs, local investment, and a cleaner local community for generations to come.”

Beyond its environmental and economic benefits, the new Hydrogen Hub also provides opportunities for educational development. Through innovative training and educational programmes with academic institutions, such as Wentzville’s Ranken Technical College, BayoTech’s Hydrogen Hubs aim to equip the future workforce with the skills needed to support and improve the hydrogen industry. As the inaugural BayoGaaS Hydrogen Hub, this facility helps meet demand for hydrogen in the region while placing Wentzville at the forefront of the hydrogen economy.

“Access to hydrogen fuel represents an exciting boost to Missouri’s economy and our energy independence” added Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer. “I commend BayoTech for its leadership in bringing low-cost, locally sourced energy to the market. I also appreciate its partnership with Rankin Technical College and their commitment to training local students to participate in the emerging industry. I look forward to seeing how the Midwest BayoGaaS™ Hydrogen Hub positively impacts the community and sets the tone for upcoming projects across the country.”
