NAVFAC awards $107 million contract for Japan-funded project on Guam

By Pacific Island Times News Staff

The Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Pacific awarded a $106.89 million contract to Core Tech-HDCC-Kajima LLC for the construction of an embarkation facility at Naval Base Guam in Apra Harbor.

Awarded on April 26, the contract supports the Defense Policy Review Initiative and is funded by the government of Japan as part of the International Agreement on the relocation of 5,000 Marines from Okinawa to Guam.

“This contract is the fourth of 12 Defense Policy Review Initiative military construction projects planned to be awarded by NAVFAC Pacific in fiscal year 2023 and is a significant step toward providing full capability for the Marine Corps on Guam,” said Rick Barne, acting director of NAVFAC Pacific Guam Program Management Office.

The work to be performed includes the construction of a facility to be used for embarkation and debarkation by the Third Marine Expeditionary Force on ships at Apra Harbor.

The facility consists of wash and inspection areas, cargo staging areas, bio-secure holding area, wash water recycling and stormwater retention and infiltration basin, and incidental related work.

“This project will provide required port embarkation capabilities that includes vital environmental protections to ensure full compliance with Guam’s environmental regulations,” said Barnes.

The project is expected to be completed in October 2026.
