The Port of Vancouver USA has signed a three-year contract with Vestas Wind Systems that includes options for extending the contract for the handling of imported wind energy cargo.

The work that comes with these agreements is expected to provide 235 jobs and $20 million in economic value to the community, according to the representatives of the port.

Port of Vancouver crews have been handling Vestas cargo since 2000. The port has been operating under an exclusive agreement with Vestas, which makes Vancouver the only Columbia River port to handle Vestas cargo. The agreement with Siemens also provides exclusivity in the Columbia River for the Port of Vancouver.
