SHENANDOAH, Iowa — BNSF Logistics, an affiliate of BNSF Railway, is wrapping up a wind turbine project in southwestern Iowa, reports local newspaper Valley News.

For the past several months, unit trains of wind turbine parts have been unloading materials at an offload site in Shenandoah. A total of 24 trains were planned for the project and only four additional trains are left. Railroad officials expect there are only about two weeks remaining before all unloading will be complete.

The wind turbine parts are being unloaded from flat cars and transported to the Rock Creek Wind Farm in nearby Tarkio, Mo.

Clay Gambill, director of wind energy sales at BNSF Logistics, says they are pleased with the site and will keep the facility in mind for future projects.

The Shenandoah offload site is in close proximity to a number of wind turbine projects in southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri.

Vestas is the manufacturer of the wind turbines.
