Corpus Christi increases capacity

December 21 - Port Corpus Christi has approved a contract for the construction of an additional 25 acre (10.1 ha) laydown yard for the storage of wind turbine components and other breakbulk cargo.

The first phase of the project comprises a 10 acre (4 ha) laydown yard, which will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2018. The additional 15 acre (6 ha) laydown yard will be available in the following months.

The wind turbine cargo volumes handled via the port have increased steadily over the past several years, says Port Corpus Christi. Jarl Pedersen, chief commercial officer, explained: "Port authorities play an important role within the supply chain to help customers and users successfully execute major wind turbine projects.

"We also recognise the continued innovation in the wind energy industry and need to make infrastructure investments allowing us to offer competitive solutions for transport of ever larger wind turbine components."
