Cape Wind, developer of a 468 MW offshore wind farm in Nantucket Sound, has signed a $15 million contract with Falmouth, Mass.-based Lawrence-Lynch Corp. to provide the upland construction work required to bury Cape Wind's electric cables.

Lawrence-Lynch Corp. will also be responsible for providing a conduit for connecting the buried electric cables on land to the submerged ocean submarine cables by using a "directional drill" from the landfall point in West Yarmouth out to a temporary cofferdam the company will construct in Lewis Bay. Cape Wind says Lawrence-Lynch Corp.'s work will begin in 2014.

"We are excited about both the size and scope the Cape Wind project offers to our company; constructing the Cape Wind infrastructure system from out on Lewis Bay up to the Barnstable sub-station affords us opportunities that are not often available to the local contracting pool," says Lawrence-Lynch Corp. President Chris Lynch.
