Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS), an experienced Department of Defense general contractor, has been awarded a $2.4M project to repair fuel Tank 1 at Luis Muñoz Marin Air National Guard Base (ANGB) in Puerto Rico. This task order was awarded under CMS’s Regional Engineering & Construction (RE&C) East Region prime contract with the US Air Force. This will be CMS’s second project at Luis Muñoz Marin ANGB, following the reconstruction of Tank 34 and repairs to a Vehicle Fueling Station (VFS) performed under a previous $6.1M task order.
This task order entails the repair of Tank 1, a 1,786-BBL (75,000 gallon) tank, which is currently out of service. Interior repairs include replacing the internal floating pan, internal pipe supports, stilling wells, ladder, and issue and receipt lines. Exterior repairs include replacing the roof guardrail and vent/inspection hatches, piping, nozzles, alarms, installing an external spiral stairway, grounding and davit arm. Once repairs are completed, CMS will blast and recoat the tank. This project will take roughly one year to complete.
Company CEO, Ernest Enrique, stated, “We look forward to the opportunity to continue fuels work at Luis Muñoz Marin ANGB. We are well versed in the logistics of working at island locations and have solid knowledge of this particular Caribbean locale, as we recently completed work on the tank adjacent to Tank 1. This institutional knowledge, combined with our robust and growing worldwide fuels program, will ensure the successful delivery of the project in support of the base mission and the US Air Force.”
