Navy contracts with five companies to compete for future possible shipyard modernization projects in Hawaii and Washington

By NAVFAC Headquarters Public Affairs & Communications Office

WASHINGTON -- Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts to five companies to facilitate the award of future task orders for potential military construction projects at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY&IMF) in Hawaii and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS) & IMF in Washington.

The five companies may compete for future task orders for pre-construction planning, preparation, and constructability reviews associated with construction of waterfront facilities such as warehouses, dry docks, piers, and other site improvements, as well as dredging and incidental design, environmental, and other services related to the Navy's Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP).

"These contracts will help the Navy begin design and renovation work at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard once we've completed all the regulatory processes, including agency and government-to-government consultations and public engagement," said Rear Adm. John Korka, NAVFAC’s commander, and the Navy’s chief of Civil Engineers. "It involves industry partners in our planning efforts, a lesson we learned from our SIOP efforts to date. This will facilitate healthy competition and, ultimately, help us deliver the best solution we can for our Navy and our Nation."

The contracts are for up to eight years or a combined cumulative value of $8 billion, whichever comes first. While the contracts are primarily for SIOP-related work at PHNSY and PSNS, task orders may also be issued for work at other sites in NAVFAC's areas of responsibility.

"The Navy depends on our shipyards returning combat-ready ships and submarines to the fleet,” said Korka. "SIOP guides the Navy's investment plan to achieve that. It's a once-in-a-century effort that the NAVFAC team is proud to be part of."

SIOP is a joint effort between NAVFAC, Naval Sea Systems Command, and Commander, Navy Installations Command to recapitalize and modernize the infrastructure at the Navy's four public shipyards, including repairing and modernizing dry docks, recapitalizing and reconfiguring shipyard facilities, and modernizing the shipyards' industrial plant equipment.

The awardees for this contract are Reston, Virginia-based Bechtel National, Inc.; Honolulu, Hawaii-based Dragados/Hawaiian Dredging/Orion JV; Burlingame, California-based ECC Infrastructure, LLC; Vancouver, Washington-based SIOP MACC, AJV; and Sylmar, California-based TPC-NAN joint venture.
