$5.8M to Harden Pensacola Electrical Grid Against Storm Damage
Gulf Power Co. in Pensacola, FL received $5.8 million for Modification P00006 under an existing utility service contract (N62647-90-F-1804) for electrical distribution hardening as a result of an architecture/engineer study. The idea is to make the system less vulnerable under hurricane conditions, thereby, minimizing significant damage. Work will be performed at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Pensacola, FL and is expected to be complete by June 2008. The basic contract was a sole source award to Gulf Power utilizing an existing General Services Administration area-wide electrical commodity contract dated Dec. 12, 1990. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast in Jacksonville, FL issued the contract.
