Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation, a global construction contractor for the Department of Defense (DoD), announced today it has won its first two projects of 2024 at Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan and Misawa Air Base (AB), Japan. These projects were awarded to CMS under its Air Force Worldwide Engineering and Construction (WE&C) prime contract.

Under a $7.8 million project at Kadena AB, CMS will modernize and repair the hydrant fueling control system. CMS will repair flow controls and pressure relief systems, as well as associated piping, valves, and connections. Additionally, this project will require significant re-piping at the filtration pad, replacement of the threaded piping components, modernization of the existing R-12 HHT checkout stand, and new coatings where necessary.

CMS will make various fuel system repairs under a $1.9 million task order at Misawa AB. CMS will repair various fuel components at Tank Farms 1 and 2, a truck offload facility, Type III and IV hydrant systems, and the North and South Service Stations. Specific scopes of work may include pipeline coatings; installation of emergency fuel shutoffs, redundant relief headers, and emergency vents and ladders; and repairs to pipe supports, breaker panel EFSO switches, sidewalks, and curbs.

CMS Chairman and CEO, Ernest Enrique, stated, “We are pleased to continue expanding our presence in Japan with these two projects.  CMS has a robust global fuels program that serves the Air Force in addition to other DoD agencies and private-sector clients.  With these contracts, we will continue to showcase our award-winning safety and quality standards, as well as on-time project delivery.
