Mexico, Wind Energy Industry; Tradelossa has completed another large scale operation for La Chalupa Wind Farm, located on American territory in Rio Hondo, Texas.

The project consisted about the transportation of 49 sections of wind towers, classified as T1, T2, and T3; All towers were loaded at our client's facilities in Mexican territory within the port city of Altamira, Tamaulipas and transported to the border's crossing point ''Los Indios'' between the Mexican city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas and the Texan county's of Cameron, US.

Operations began during the last weeks of April and successfully concluded during the month of July. Through the course of the project, Tradelossa took on the task of carrying out not only the transportation of all the towers inside Mexican territory but also the entire process of crossing all towers at border, and their delivery at the wind farm in Rio Hondo, Texas.
