Cape Wind spurs a $15 million contract

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 said 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 said the 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 reviews and opponents who say it will ruin Vineyard Sound and that its power is overpriced.
