Corpus Christi welcomes wind shipments

Port of Corpus Christi’s recently developed breakbulk cargo laydown yard, the Rincon West Yard, has received its first shipment of wind turbine components.

Components for the Blue Cloud Wind Farm will be imported through the 25-acre (10.1 ha) yard, which is in close proximity to Cargo Dock 9, located on the north side of the ship channel.

Wind turbine manufacturer, Vestas, is scheduled to import wind turbine nacelles, hubs, drive trains and blades for Tri-Global Energy’s 148 MW wind farm, which is located in the Texas counties of Bailey and Lamb.

From the laydown area, the components will be trucked to the job site, says Corpus Christi.

“The future of wind energy is important to Corpus Christi, Texas and the USA; and our Rincon West Yard is an incredibly viable logistics option for the innovative wind energy industry,” said Port of Corpus Christi ceo, Sean Strawbridge.

The Rincon West Yard was developed for heavy and breakbulk cargo. Adjacent highway systems and barge docks represent added logistical benefits for the new yard, says the port.
