Cianbro has been notified by Siemens that Cape Wind and Siemens have entered into a Technical Services Agreement (TSA) contract for the Cape Wind offshore wind farm project. The TSA includes a modularization opportunity for Cianbro. Cianbro will be designing and building the electrical service platform (ESP) for the project at the company’s modular manufacturing facility in Brewer, Maine. The ESP is like an offshore substation which will pull the power generated by individual wind turbines and send it ashore. The total value of the platform and substructure will exceed $100 million.
“This is exciting news for our company, and most importantly, for the people of Maine,” said Cianbro Chairman and CEO Pete Vigue. “This development surely should give us confidence that Maine can compete successfully in building and exporting sophisticated projects.”
