1950

Another multimillion dollar award has been made for a military contract on Guam. NAVFAC Pacific has awarded a $28.5 million contract for power upgrades to Hensel Phelps Construction Co. of Honolulu, Hawaii.

The contract includes the construction of a 34.5 kilo-Volt underground electrical transmission and distribution lines as well as connections and modifications to electrical substations.

The contract should be completed by March 2020. Although the release from NAVFAC Pacific does not state that this contract is related to the relocation of Marines from Okinawa to Guam the completion date is in-line with their relocation. Two other contracts were recently awarded in the past two weeks for projects directly related to the relocation of Marines. Both of those contracts are scheduled for a completion date in 2020. Vertical construction of the marine base on NCTS is supposed to begin sometime around the year 2020 with the first marines set to arrive on Guam in the mid 2020’s.
