SeaBox Wins Containerized Refrigeration Contract
July 16/07: Sea Box, Inc. in East Riverton, NJ received $6.4 million for firm-fixed-price Delivery Order #0001 under previously awarded contract (M67854-07-D-5060) for 185 Large Refrigeration Systems (probably these). The firm specializes in “thinking inside the box,” selling standard shipping containers and/or modifying them in order to provide sturdy and transportable – or even mobile – shelter and services in remote environments. Roles can include workshops, secure storage, power generation, water purification, emergency medical operations, command centers, and more. Its ShelterPAK quickly transforms unused shipping containers into living quarters for disaster relief and other operations. One step beyond, its military “Battlebox” module can be used alone to create an instant Forward Operating Base with more protection and amenities than traditional tents, or in clusters to create the modern version of a Roman camp.
Work will be performed in East Riverton, NJ, and is expected to be complete in December 2009. This contract is a full open competition award to Sea Box, Inc., as it is the sole manufacturer of the Large Refrigeration Systems. The Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, VA issued the contract.
