BANGOR — Maine construction firm Cianbro Corp. says it’s won a contract to build modules for a Brazilian firm, creating prospects for more than 100 jobs.

The Bangor Daily News says Cianbro Chairman Peter Vigue made the announcement Wednesday. Vigue said the company’s been hired to construct 22 building modules at its Brewer facility for the Vale company of Brazil, which has a nickel processing facility in Newfoundland.

The modules, which will house electrical components, will be three stories high and weigh up to 600 tons each. They’ll be loaded onto barges from Brewer and shipped to Newfoundland.

The module job will require engineers, electricians and other construction workers.
