NORWALK, CONN. — EMCOR Group Inc. announced in early February that the U.S. Navy has awarded to EJB Facilities Services Inc., a joint venture for which EMCOR serves as managing partner, an eight-year contract to provide base operations support to facilities in the Western Puget Sound area of Washington State.
The bases, part of Naval Region Northwest, encompass strategically important fleet support activities, including the home of the U.S. Pacific Fleet's nuclear submarines.
EJB is a joint venture consisting of EMCOR Facilities Services, J&J Maintenance and BMAR & Associates. Total project value is in excess of $400 million, and EMCOR's share amounts to 40%.
Under terms of the contract, more than 500 professional, technical and crafts personnel of the joint venture and its subcontractors will provide a variety of support services for Naval Base-Kitsap and various other activities located in outlying areas. Services covered in the contract, which was awarded by the Navy Region Northwest, include management and administration, visual information services, security, facilities support, utilities, equipment maintenance, and environ-mental services.
The centerpiece of the contract is the Navy's submarine base in Bangor, Wash., located on the Hood Canal, which opens onto Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean. In addition to being homeport for the U.S. Pacific submarine fleet, the area has other bases that will be served by the joint venture. They include the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Keyport, Wash.; Puget Sound Naval Shipyard; the Fleet Industrial Supply Center and Naval Hospital in Bremerton, Wash.; and the Naval Magazine on Indian Island.
"We are moving forward with creating more efficiencies in how we do business in supporting the fleet here in the Pacific Northwest," said Rear Admiral William French, Commander, Navy Region Northwest. "We are counting on EJB's expertise to help us in this endeavor."
