CMS Wins $4.3 M Fuels Project in Guam

Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation, an experienced Department of Defense general contractor, announced today it has been awarded a $4.3M project to repair four aviation fuel hydrant system pumphouses (designated as HS-1 through HS-4) at Andersen AFB, Guam.  This project falls under CMS’ Worldwide Engineering and Construction (WE&C) contract with the US Air Force.

Under this task order, CMS will replace a substantial amount of the piping network in each pumphouse with new stainless-steel (SS) piping sections to include reconnection to existing high point vents, low point drains, pressure relief valves, instrumentation connections. Ancillary work includes non-destructive examinations (NDE), new pipe supports, washing soluble salts from the entire pipe network, and replacement of one of four 600-GPM issue pumps and motors at each pumphouse. Additionally, CMS will clean, flush, pressure test, and commission the hydrant system. Work will include some off-site fabrication of SS piping sections, with piping ranging from ½ inch to 16 inches in diameter. 

Company CEO, Ernest Enrique, stated, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to support these core components of the hydrant systems at Andersen AFB.  This win marks significant growth for our overall fuels program, specifically in Guam, in 2021.  As always, it is our priority to deliver this project on-time, on-budget, and with the utmost level of client satisfaction.”

CMS Awarded $11M Fuel Hydrant System at FedEx Indy Hub

BARGERSVILLE, IN – CMS Corporation (CMS), a leading mechanical construction firm, announced today that it has been awarded an $11.4 million turnkey contract with Walsh Construction Company (Walsh) to install a new extension of the aviation fuel hydrant system at the Federal Express (FedEx) Corporation’s Indianapolis Hub (INDH) at the Indianapolis International Airport in Indianapolis, IN.

Over a 2-year construction period, CMS will provide and install approximately 24,000 feet of 12-inch and 16-inch epoxy-lined and FBE-coated pipe, galvanic cathodic protection (CP) for the piping and related structures, 35 fuel hydrant pits, 19 large isolation pits, 22 low point drain pits, and 22 high point vent pits. Work also includes approximately 1,500 feet of directional boring for a section of the 16-inch hydrant piping to be placed beneath 2 active taxiways and a runway. The complete fueling system includes installation of all related pipes, pits, valves, appurtenances, and static ground and CP systems.

This project is part of a 7-year, $1.5 billion expansion of FedEx’s 320-acre, 2.5 million-square-foot Indianapolis hub. All in, CMS’s portion of this project accounts for $11.4 million injected directly into the US and local economies through the purchase of domestically-made steel pipe, as well as the use of domestically-made specialty underground structures, domestic material suppliers, Indiana-based contractors (including MBEs), and locally-sourced labor. CMS is a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Small Business headquartered in Bargersville, IN.

Ernest Enrique, CEO of CMS, stated, “CMS is known for performing complex industrial mechanical and fuels-related work for our DoD and commercial clients. This award, the result of a strategic collaboration with Walsh, allows us to showcase our mechanical self-performance capabilities building a pressurized aviation hydrant fuel system for a key commercial customer.”
