The offshore wind industry is creating demand for thousands of skilled union jobs right here on Long Island. As a Tier I contractor, Haugland Group is advancing workforce development programs and job opportunities for Long Islanders.

Developers of the Sunrise Wind project have awarded Long Island’s largest wind-farm contract to date to Melville-based Haugland Group for construction of a 17½-mile cable from Smith Point to Holbrook. The project, which will run along the William Floyd Parkway and the Long Island Expressway, is expected to bring more than 400 jobs during construction and provide the region with an economic boost through use of regional contractors, food vendors and workforce development.
