Port of Vancouver USA
Strategically located at a major nexus of ocean and river shipping lanes, two interstate highways, and a continent- spanning rail network, the Port of Vancouver USA is a dynamic hub of global trade and the multipurpose port authority for Vancouver, Washington.
Established in 1912, it is the ideal gateway for connecting Asia and South America to the US midcontinent and Canada. The port handles more than eight million tons of cargo each year, including wheat, mineral and liquid bulks, vehicles, and a broad range of project cargo.
During the first seven months of 2020, a total of 30,969 metric tons of wind energy components moved through its facilities, including 582 blades (27 of them measuring 76m in length) and 204 full three-piece towers.
In 2019, 60.4 GW of wind energy was installed at locations around the world – an increase of 19 percent compared to installations in 2018. Total capacity for wind energy globally stood at over 651 GW by the end of 2019, 10 percent higher than the total in 2018.
