Firm faces fine for delay on wind turbine
By Juliet Pennington / Globe Correspondent / July 13, 2013
The construction company responsible for building a wind turbine for the town of Hanover will be hit with hefty fines for repeated delays in the project, town officials say.
“We continue to be frustrated with the performance of the company hired to construct this turbine,” Hanover Town Manager Troy Clarkson said of Wilmington-based Lumus Construction.“They are woefully behind schedule.”

The project was supposed to be completed by late January 2011. The contract, signed in July 2010, allows the town to fine Lumus Contruction up to $1,000 a day for delays, meaning the fines could be in excess of $500,000 now.

Sumul Shah, owner of the company, could not be reached for comment. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
