FLOWER MOUND -- BNSF Logistics and Tri Global Energy are jointing together in an agreement to align resources, market knowledge and industry relationships to support BNSFLs development of their West Texas Wind Energy Logistics Center.
The joint marketing agreement between the two leaders in their respective markets is an innovative approach to manage capacity, optimize routing of turbine components and drive greater volumes through a major facility to reduce costs on a per unit basis.
"Aligning the infrastructure, resources and vision that BNSFL has for capacity and service to the wind energy industry with TGE, a preeminent developer in the dynamic West Texas region, will allow us to fast track development and ultimately deliver the improved economies that the industry covets," said BNSF Logistics Chief Marketing Officer Jim Craig.
"Having a freight and logistics powerhouse like BNSFL bringing their resources and expertise to boost TGEs West Texas projects provides a critical element supporting our overall vision," said TGEs Chief Executive Officer John Billingsley. "West Texas has emerged as the 'bulls-eye' for wind energy projects in North America, due to ideal wind speeds, geography and being at the nexus of the three U.S. power grids. And Tri Global Energy has emerged as a major player in the West Texas wind energy arena."
