CMS Awarded $11.6M Fuels Project in Guam

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS), an experienced Department of Defense construction and bulk fuels prime contractor, announced today it has been awarded an $11.6 million project to repair multiple aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) at Andersen AFB, Guam. Under this project, CMS will make a wide range of repairs to three ASTs containing JP-8 jet fuel. Each 100,479 BBL (4.2M gallon) tank stands 24-feet high with a 173-foot diameter. All of the tanks are currently in service.

The scope of work will include tank cleaning prior to repairs, internal and exterior coating repairs using a 3-coat system, and specified repair/replacement of corroded or worn vents, manways, pumps, vents, valves, drains, gauges, flanges, strapping, name plates and labeling, piping, stairs, roofs, tank floors, etc. During the project, only one tank can be taken out of service at a time. CMS will perform a full API 653 out-of-service inspection on each tank after all repairs have been completed and certify each tank fit for return to service.

The U.S. Air Force awarded this project to CMS – a prime contract holder under the $2.5 billion Worldwide Engineering and Construction multiple award contract.

We have successfully completed over $100 million in new construction, renovation and bulk fuels work for our Air Force and Navy clients at this strategic location. We recently completed a project to make emergent repairs to 6 STI tanks and are currently repairing five other fuel tanks ranging in size up to 100,500 BBL at Andersen AFB. We look forward to executing these projects efficiently and safely in support of the Base mission.”

CMS Awarded $5.4M Fuels Project in Bahamas

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS), an experienced Department of Defense construction prime contractor, announced today it has been awarded a $5.4M project to clean and repair seven fuel tanks at the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) located at Naval Station Andros Island in the Bahamas. Located just west of Nassau and roughly 180 nautical miles southeast of West Palm Beach, FL, the AUTEC is a laboratory that performs integrated 3-D hydrospace/aerospace trajectory measurements covering the entire spectrum of undersea simulated warfare — calibration,  classifications, detection and destruction. The AUTEC mission is to assist in establishing and maintaining naval ability of the United States through testing, evaluation and underwater research.

Under this project, CMS will make repairs to seven tanks, including such items as high/low level alarms, platforms and stairs, valves and flanges, piping, and areas where the coatings have failed. The tanks contain either Jet A-1 fuel, diesel fuel or MOGAS and are all currently “in service.” The project will be phased, so only one tank of a given fuel type is taken out of service at a time. The period of performance for this project is 18 months.

This award was made under CMS’s Worldwide Engineering and Construction prime contract with the U.S. Air Force.

Company CEO Ernest Enrique noted, “This project has a number of unique challenges above and beyond working during a pandemic, including limited site access, the logistics of getting equipment and materials to the island, and the potential for weather impacts during the hurricane season. CMS is currently executing another large fuels project in the Caribbean – a $5.4M tank repair and vehicle refueling station project at Luis Munoz Marin Air National Guard Base, Puerto Rico – and is well versed in managing these unique challenges. We look forward to executing this project in support of the AUTEC mission.”
