For this project, the JV will construct a 3-story Port Operations Facility that will serve as a consolidated compound for intermodal management and port operations at NS Rota. The building will include a small craft maintenance high bay area, workshops, storage areas, an oil spill response area, a hazardous supply & waste storage area, bunk rooms, locker & shower rooms, a conference room, and office spaces, as well as an administrative suite to accommodate Spanish Port Operations personnel and functions. The JV will also construct a Harbor Control Tower to house equipment and work areas, as well as a Forward Deployed Regional Maintenance Center (FDRMC) with offices, conference and training rooms, and a QA testing room.

Project completion is expected in Summer 2024. The JV is also currently bidding additional task orders under the Rota MACC, including a large hangar renovation and construction of an expeditionary maintenance facility and a new Aerospace Ground Equipment (AGE) maintenance shop and storage facility, with a combined value in the range of $65 million to $80 million.

Ernest Enrique, CEO of CMS Corporation, noted, “The JV is pleased to receive this first task order award under the Rota MACC. We look forward to the opportunity to partner with the Navy to safely deliver a high quality, timely and on budget Port Operations Facility that will support the NS Rota mission for years to come.”

MADRID, SPAIN and BARGERSVILLE, IN, USA – ACCIONA CMS JV announced today it has been awarded the Navy’s $500 million Design-Build/Design-Bid-Build Multiple Award Construction Contract (DB/DBB MACC) for projects primarily located in Rota, Spain. A joint venture (JV) between Madrid-based ACCIONA and Indiana-based CMS Corporation (CMS), the ACCIONA CMS JV was one of seven firms awarded a contract.

Task orders issued under the MACC can range from $8 million to $64 million and include construction of airfield, industrial, infrastructure, administrative, training, retail, food service, munition storage, and community support facilities. The contract duration is seven years, with expected completion in June 2029. NAVFAC Atlantic, headquartered in Norfolk, VA, is the contracting activity. 

MACC awardees were rated on their proposed organization for the MACC, overall safety approach and record, corporate experience, technical solution to construct a Port Operations facility (seed project) at NS Rota, and history of outstanding past performance. The combination of ACCIONA’s Rota region experience and expansive resources, coupled with CMS’s NAVFAC indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract management experience, made for a winning combination. The ACCIONA CMS JV Team also includes US-based American Structurepoint as the Designer of Record for task orders issued under this MACC.
