A Guam-based company has been awarded a $9.5 million contract for repairs to a firefighting system at Andersen Air Force Base.

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas chose Modern International Inc., located in Barrigada, to do the job.

The project requires repairs to the sprinkler system and the system that delivers “aqueous film-forming foam” within Building 2641 along the North Ramp at Andersen Air Force Base.

According to the award announcement on defense.gov, the work to be performed includes the replacement of the fire and foam pumps, pump controllers, sprinkler piping, foam holding tanks, fire alarms, and other heat and flame detectors.

Modern International was selected from among four companies who submitted bids for the project.

The work is expected to be completed by October 2020.

The contract is a multiple award, design-build construction contract.

The money is coming from the Navy’s operations and maintenance budget for the 2019 fiscal year and the funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

In May, Modern International also was awarded an $18.6 million contract for the removal of old aprons and the construction of two new hangars on the Air Force base.
