South Carolina-based Prysmian Cables and Systems USA has won the contract for the eventual supply of the intra array and export power cables for the 468 MW Cape Wind offshore wind farm, being developed off the coast of Nantucket Island. In addition, New Jersey-based Caldwell Marine International has been awarded the contract for the installation of the underwater cables.

Cape Wind President Jim Gordon says that the new agreements mark significant project milestones and that Prysmian and Caldwell are "capable companies that will help establish a domestic offshore wind supply chain."

This newest announcement follows other recent progress on the Cape Wind project, including a $600 million loan from a Danish credit agency and a turbine-supply deal with Siemens for 130 3.6-MW offshore machines.
