Bakken Energy signs MoU with BNSF Railway to design Heartland Hydrogen Hub

Bakken Energy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with BNSF Railway to work together on the design of the Heartland Hydrogen Hub, specifically the role of railways as consumers and transporters of clean hydrogen.

BNSF Railway is one of North America’s leading freight transportation companies, with a rail network of 32,500 route miles in 28 states and three Canadian provinces.

In collaboration with the States of North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Montana, Bakken Energy is working on the design of the Heartland Hydrogen Hub, a regional clean hydrogen hub competing to obtain federal funding through the Department of Energy’s $7bn Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs program announced on September 22, 2022 as part of the larger $8bn hydrogen hub program funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
