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 Wins $29M Hangar Project at Andersen AFB

Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS), an experienced Department of Defense general contractor, announced today it has been awarded a $29 million project to renovate and make additions to the existing Hangar 6 at Andersen AFB, Guam. CMS received this award under its $2.6 billion prime Worldwide Engineering and Construction (WE&C) contract with the Air Force.

For this project, CMS will renovate an approximate 18,900-SF portion of Hangar 6 to expand the footprint of the aircraft maintenance areas, as well as existing offices and support spaces. We will also construct two 1-story structures – a Supply Section and a Support Section, directly adjacent to the Hangar. The new Supply Section includes constructing a high-bay precast concrete structure that will contain storage racks, storage cabinets, and administrative desks. The new Support Section will contain Aerospace Maintenance Equipment (AGE) and Maintenance Storage within a high-bay precast concrete structure. Additional work includes construction of a new exterior wash rack and demolition of an 86-SM exterior storage facility.

CMS has a long, successful work history on Guam, having successfully executed over 35 renovation, new construction, design-build and military fuels projects valued at more than $112 million on island. Company CEO, Ernest Enrique, stated, “With this award, CMS is looking forward to adding to our 11-year history serving Andersen AFB. Our team’s institutional knowledge of Andersen AFB and the logistics of working on island, relevant hangar experience – both on and off island – and expansive on-island resource network will ensure successful delivery of this important project. We look forward to supporting the continued buildup on Guam, as well as the opportunity to continue our work at this strategic location.

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.

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.”
