Cape Wind Moves Forward On Deal With Falmouth Firm

Rendition from Cape Wind

The Cape Wind offshore wind project has signed a $15 million deal with a Falmouth company to do the upland construction work needed to bury the project’s electric cables.

Cape Wind announced Monday that Lawrence-Lynch Corp. will also build a conduit between Cape Wind’s buried land cables and its submerged ocean cables.

Lawrence-Lynch president Chris Lynch says deal is a great opportunity for his company and means work for both management and the local trades.

The $2.6 billion Cape Wind project aims to be the nation’s first offshore wind farm. The 131-turbine project was proposed in 2001, but has been delayed by lengthy review and opponents who say it will ruin the sound and that its power is significantly overpriced.

The project aims to start construction by the year’s end and produce power by 2015. (Associated Press)
