On Tuesday, we had a great visit from officials with BayoTech Inc., a company who develops and manufactures hydrogen generation plants. Members of the BayoTech group delivered an informative presentation about their facility in Albuquerque, and we had an informative discussion about whether these services might work well in Carlsbad and Southeast New Mexico. We had members of the potash community, WIPP and the oil and gas industry participate in the discussion, as well as Xcel Energy and other key stakeholders. We are supportive of an “all of the above” approach to energy and industry in Carlsbad, which could include hydrogen.
Thanks again to BayoTech respresentatives Viswanath Krishnamoorthy, Michael Koonce, Stewart Stewart and Andrea Edmonds for visiting us in Carlsbad. John Heaton and Roger Nelson played a very important role in organizing the discussion as well. Thank you again to Senator Heinrich’s office for helping set up this visit and to Boutique Air for helping with travel arrangements.
