AMEC awarded major U.S. Navy fuel facilities contract


Plymouth Meeting, Pa. USA (25 August 2009) AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, is among five companies to be selected by the U.S. Navy for up to US$350 million in repair and modernization projects involving petroleum, oil and lubricant (POL) facilities worldwide.  

The multiple-award contract with the Naval Facilities Engineering Services Center (NFESC) is a five-year construction contract in which projects will be awarded individually as task orders. Task orders will range from $50,000 to $4 million and involve the design, engineering, inspection, testing and construction of fuel systems and their various components.  Services will include all aspects of project execution from inception through final closeout.  

"This contract represents a major client's acknowledgement of our worldwide expertise and expanded services in the federal energy arena," remarked Doug Hayes, AMEC's principal in charge. "It is a critical milestone toward achieving our vision of becoming a top provider of fuels expertise to U.S. government facilities."  

Engineer Ed Znoj, AMEC's program manager, stated: "We have assembled a team of world-class experts with all of the capabilities needed to address the full scope of fuel systems engineering services at locations around the world."  AMEC is teamed with Robert & Company, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business and an international leader in fueling system engineering and design. The AMEC team also includes four specialty subcontractors: Corrosion Control, Inc.; HMT Inc.; Landmark Structures, Inc.; and KCI Technologies Inc.  

Specific projects will be competitively awarded as task orders. Projects typically will involve construction, repair, modification and upgrade of any components of POL systems, including underground and above-ground storage tanks, on-land and underwater pipelines, pumps, meters, electrical systems, infrastructure utilities, and any other equipment, buildings or structures associated with fuel operations. Awards will be based on a determination of the best value to the government, rather than on lowest price.  

"AMEC is well suited for these types of task-order awards due to our ability to bring a high level of expertise to difficult challenges while fulfilling the Navy's desire for an environmental sustainable solution," said Executive Vice President Paul Pettit, AMEC's corporate sponsor.  

The other four companies selected by the Navy were Innovative Technical Solutions, Shaw Environmental, Weston Solutions and Willbros Government Services.
