MYR Group Inc. Awarded Transmission Contract With Central Maine Power Company

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Dec. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MYR Group Inc. (Nasdaq:MYRG), a leading specialty contractor serving the electrical infrastructure market in the United States, announced it has entered into a contract with Central Maine Power Company, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, to construct and rebuild approximately 210 miles of 345-kilovolt (kV) and 115kV transmission lines throughout northeastern Maine. The contract value is approximately $200 million. The project includes the "Northern Loop" of the $1.4 billion Maine Power Reliability Program (MPRP), the largest energy infrastructure project in the state's history.

Under the contract, MYR Transmission Services, Inc. ("MYRT"), an MYR subsidiary, will provide transmission line construction services including environmental controls, foundation installation, structure installation and conductor stringing for the new line segments. Construction planning is already underway and actual construction is expected to begin in early 2011. Substantial completion is scheduled for August 2014.

"MYR Group is proud to be part of this exciting undertaking," said William A. Koertner, chairman and chief executive officer of MYR. "Not only will we be playing a part in the commitment to improve the electrical infrastructure for Maine and the surrounding region, we also will be contributing to new job creation and helping to stimulate the region's economy. It is encouraging to see major projects like this moving forward to the construction phase."

The work MYRT will perform under the contract will contribute to Central Maine Power Company's commitment to improving the reliability of its bulk electric transmission system while bolstering Maine's economy and improving access to greater sources of renewable energy.
