The Port of Longview in Washington has welcomed Acciona wind cargo to its growing operations. The first shipment of Acciona cargo arrived on the M/V Beluga Finesse. DSV Air & Sea Inc.'s project cargo division in Chicago coordinated the shipment into Longview.

Acciona hubs and nacelles arrived adjoined. The Port of Longview assembled a team of local contractors to separate the two components for transportation to the project site in Montana.

"The Port of Longview is pleased to provide quality turbine and tower handling services to Acciona," says Valerie Harris, director of marketing for the Port of Longview. "We anticipate additional shipments during the month of June."
