Largest US wind power distribution hub opens

The recent expansion of its location in Garden City, USA, has given Transportation Partners and Logistics (TP&L) the largest wind power component distribution centre in North America, the company claims.

With additional distribution centres in North Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Nebraska, the company serves multiple industries, including wind power, with rail, port and trucking logistics support and management.

With more than 630 acres (254.9 ha) in its Garden City location alone, the company's distribution centres have, to date, provided assistance to more than 75 wind farms in North America and provide warehousing, indoor storage and logistical support for moving turbines and other wind energy generation components.

"TP&L has built a strong presence in wind power by providing complete logistics support for wind farms being built across all of North America, including Canada and Mexico," said Shelli Stacey, director of rail logistics and a partner at the company.

TP&L claims to be one of the only companies that can store, deliver and maintain wind power facilities to an industry growing every day. Stacey adds: "We look forward to serving this community as the demand for wind power continues to grow."
