JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded three contracts totaling $16.4 million to three separate Jacksonville area contractors for work at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (NS GTMO), Cuba.

The majority of the work will provide repairs from Hurricane Sandy.

"After suffering significant damage to the base, I am glad to see some of the money coming in to repair some of the infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Sandy last year," said NS GTMO Commanding Officer Capt. John Nettleton. "The planned marina repairs and refurbishment will greatly benefit the service members and residents who serve in this isolated duty station."

The largest of the three awards is a $10.3 million task order for waterfront repairs that are necessary due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. This contract was awarded Sept. 25 to Harry Pepper and Associates Inc., of Jacksonville, Fla.

Work to be performed provides for repairs to the Guantanamo Bay public marina, public beaches, and restoration of the recreational dive park. Work also includes floating fuel pier replacement, repair/replacement of the boat ramp, repairs to damaged walls and roofs, demolition of old and construction of new cabanas.

The dive area work includes a two-way ramp access with wave protection and a new elevated paved training area. Work also includes a new elevated training area, vehicle access and parking with wave run up and erosion protection.

Work for the waterfront projects are expected to be completed by January 2015.

"These projects are a huge win in improving the quality of life for all community members residing in this remote location," said NS GTMO Public Works Officer Cmdr. Ron Jenkins. "Many of these waterfront areas have been closed due to Hurricane Sandy damage for nearly one year. Base residents will be excited to see these areas repaired and open for use once again."

A second task order in the amount of $2.5 million was awarded Sept. 22 to Islands Mechanical Contractor, of Middleburg, Fla. Work for this task order includes replacement of the chiller in Building 2504, installation of backup power generators to Buildings 2509 and 1445, and replacement of the guard tower windows.

The third task order was awarded Sept. 19 to Ratcliff Construction, Inc., of Orange Park, Fla., in the amount of $3.5 million. This project will provide for the repair of damage to roofs and building envelopes caused by Hurricane Sandy. The following five buildings will be repaired by this task order: Building AV-640, Building 260, Building 776, Building 1662 Gold Hill Galley, Building 717. Building 1678 will have the windows and flashing repaired and East Caravella will have soffits repaired.
