Canadian Pacific Extends Clean Energy Supply Chain
Calgary Alberta - Canadian Pacific Logistics Solutions (CPLS) has developed a new wind energy supply chain connecting manufacturers in
Quebec and Florida with a new clean energy trans-load facility in upper New York State. CPLS is an industry leader in wind energy logistics.
"CPLS has demonstrated competence and expertise in the movement of these super-sized dimensional wind energy components", said Stephen Whitney, VP
Market Development. "Our end-to-end logistics solution creates value and drives service to new levels for these specialized customers".
The new supply chain connects wind tower sections produced in Trois Riviere, Quebec, and machine heads produced in Pensacola, Florida, USA, to move in
dedicated unit trains, or multiple car blocks, using specialized railcars to a dedicated trans-load facility in Plattsburgh, New York, USA. The components will
then travel by truck to the wind project site in Pennsylvania. CPLS coordinates the entire logistics process, including permitting, scheduling, trans-loading,
trucking, and freight rail movements.
Since 2005, CP has handled over 3,400 carload of wind energy components.
