Commissioner David Littell said the PUC had received letters in support of the project from the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, major state-based companies including construction firm Cianbro Corp. and Navy shipbuilder Bath Iron Works, as well as smaller firms involved in research and engineering, metal fabricating, marine operators and industrial rope manufacturers."There's broad support from our business community for this proposal," said Littell. "The project is already producing work for approximately 25 workers in Maine and that number will increase over the next two to three years as it ramps up in design, engineering and preconstruction activities."
