The Nova Group, Inc., Napa, Calif., is being awarded $9,369,630 for firm-fixed-price task order 0002 under a previously awarded multiple award construction contract for construction of integrated dry dock water treatment infrastructure necessary at Dry Dock 6 at Naval Base Kitsap, Bremerton, Wash, the U.S. MoD announced.

The work to be performed provides for the construction of the infrastructure necessary at Dry Dock 6 to bring the shipyard into compliance with current environmental standards for the collection and treatment of industrial process water. The work will be performed in Bremerton, Wash., and is expected to be completed by October 2013. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. Three proposals were received for this task order.

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Northwest, Silverdale, Wash. is the contracting activity.

The U.S. Navy has also contracted Nova among three contractors which have been assigned Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) for the State of Hawaii Contract No. N62742-04-D-1300/1301/1302 for a project located in Pearl Harbour.

The work of this task order is a combination of two separate projects combined together into a single task order. The purpose of this project is to provide a new central plant to provide ship support services to Drydocks 1 & 2 and Bravo Piers 1 & 2. The ship support services will include chilled water, high pressure air, nitrogen, oxygen and propane. Currently ships are provided services through portable rigs which involve many labor consuming processes. The project will also involve new electrical switchgear and transformer.

This project includes both Design-Bid-Build (Part A) and Design-Build (Part B) work to include:

  • Design-Bid-Build ship support services piping distribution systems for approx 3,500 lf of each system: chilled water, nitrogen, high pressure air, oxygen, and propane, and installation of exterior electrical and telecom/data services.
