Cape Wind signs $15m cable deal

UNITED STATES: Cape Wind Associates has contracted local company Lawrence-Lynch Corporation for onshore work on its 130-turbine offshore wind project off Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

The $15 million contract makes Lawrence-Lynch responsible for burying onshore cables and providing the conduit to connect the cables on land to those submerged in the sea. Work starts next year.

 "Constructing the Cape Wind infrastructure system affords us opportunities that are not often available to the local contracting pool," said Lawrence-Lynch president Chris Lynch.

Although it has been in development for 12 years, Cape Wind remains on course to be America’s first offshore wind farm, producing power in 2015.
