Corpus Christi enhances wind turbine movements by rail

May 7 - US Class-I rail services from the three major rail companies can now be offered at the Port of Corpus Christi to move wind turbine components following last week's move by Kansas City Southern Railway Company (KCSRof its their first wind tower tra

With this move, all three Class-I carriers are now competing for wind component business in the region as BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Rail Road (UP) began offering rail services to major manufacturers of wind energy components through Port Corpus Christi last year. 

KCSR worked with Port Corpus Christi to coordinate the move, and Kansas City Southern de México S.A. de C.V. helped coordinate transportation and car distribution. 

"We are very pleased to be able to work with KCSR. Having one more Class -I rail option to move the wind components from our port, along with our deep uncongested channel and strategically location in the Gulf of Mexico, gives the Port a better opportunity to serve the growth of wind energy components and other project cargoes." said, John LaRue, executive director.
