Corpus Christi sees first wind energy cargo exports

May 22 - Having been an active participant in the import of wind energy components from global markets since 2006, with record-breaking volumes in 2012, the Port of Corpus Christi reports that new wind energy market trends have reversed trading patterns i

Last weekend, wind energy components destined for export markets were loaded at Port Corpus Christi for the first time.

NYK-Hinode's Kuwana loaded 36 Mitsubishi wind blades destined for Japan at the port's cargo dock 9.

The blades were manufactured in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, then staged initially at Mitsubishi's laydown yard located in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, before being trucked from New Mexico to the port to await export.

"The port anticipates additional wind cargo export opportunities within the upcoming months," said John LaRue, executive director, Port Corpus Christi.
