SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest awarded a $10.6 million task order Sept. 29 for repair of a jet engine shop at Naval Air Station Lemoore.
The task order was awarded to R.A. Burch of Ramona, Calif. The facility provides intermediate level repair for the F414 engine used in U.S. Navy F/A-18 and EA-18G aircraft.
"I feel honored to be involved in the execution of this contract which will provide support to the war fighter through providing much needed repairs to their jet engine repair facility," said Ray Gloria, NAVFAC Southwest contract specialist for this project.
The jet engine repair facility repair project will help the Navy by providing various repairs to the interior and exterior of the building, fire protection and fire alarm systems, resurface roofing system, repair and improvements to electrical distribution system, and asbestos abatement. This facility was built in 1960 and has only undergone one modification since, a small addition in 1988.
Work will be performed in Lemoore, Calif. and is expected to be completed by spring 2016. Fiscal year 2014 operations and maintenance (Navy) contract funds in the amount of $10.6 million are obligated to this award. NAVFAC Southwest is the contracting activity.
NAVFAC Southwest Desert Integrated Product Team members working on this project include Project Manager Paul Fugoso, Design Manager Dustin Bernson, Contracting Officer Nina Gagliano, and Gloria.
