Central Maine Power (CMP) has awarded a $980,000 contract to TRC Companies Inc. to provide professional design and engineering services, project management, construction management, testing and commissioning for the development of the Ludden Lane substation in Canton, Maine.

When complete, the substation will connect the Saddleback Mountain wind farm to CMP's transmission grid to deliver renewable energy across Maine. Under the contract, TRC will design all required substation structures, switches, bus/conduit, foundations, grounding, lightning shielding, control house, protection and controls equipment, relay settings, and fencing. The project is expected to be complete in October 2013.

"TRC is proud of our long-standing relationship with CMP and our continued work on projects that improve power delivery to the residents of Maine," says Chris Vincze, TRC’s chairman and CEO.
