Wind energy fuels Longview's increase in laydown space

September 26 - Increased breakbulk handling and a recent rise in customer demand, particularly for the movement of cargoes relating to the wind energy industry, have spurred the Port of Longview to develop an additional 15 acres of laydown space just yard

By the middle of 2009, the port had handled 36,912 tonnes of wind energy cargo imports, far exceeding the port's projections for the entire year and prompting it to develop additional storage to accommodate the growing needs of customers.

Director of Marketing, Valerie Harris, stated, "The Port's business development ventures focus on cargoes which require a significant amount of terminal space. Improved and accessible laydown space is one of the most valuable tools we use to keep and attract breakbulk and project cargo business."
