SANTA RITA, Guam – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Marianas awarded today a $14.1 million dollar firm-fixed price task order to Overland Federal LLC, a small business, for on-going wharf improvements in Apra Harbor at Naval Base Guam.
This award represents the second increment of wharf improvements undertaken, including utility and infrastructure upgrades to Uniform and Tango wharves in support of Navy and Marine Corps requirements for the Guam realignment program.
“The Navy truly values the support and significant investments made already by our partners in the construction industry,” said Joe Ludovici, principal deputy (acting) Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment. “This project will further enhance Navy and Guam’s capacity in support of the strategic and operational focus for U.S. military operations in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The work includes wharf strengthening; upgrades and repairs to the mooring and berthing system, utilities and wharf storm drain systems, and electrical and communication systems; demolition and reconstruction of a generator building and site improvements to support berthing capacities and facilitate efficient loading and off-loading of ships that directly support the military mission.
“This project is vital to support and strengthen the safety, efficiency and readiness of our men and women of the Navy and Marine Corps,” said NAVFAC Marianas Commanding Officer Capt. John Heckmann. “As we undertake this important work, we are pleased to partner with one of our very capable small businesses to meet evolving requirements of the fleet and 21st century ship operations in the West Pacific.”
In September 2010 NAVFAC Pacific awarded $86 million to Guam MACC Builders A Joint Venture of Honolulu for the first increment of the project. This work is expected to be completed in October 2013.
Work on the second increment is expected to be completed by June 2014.
