Broward County, FL, has awarded a New Jersey industrial painting contractor a $1.6 million contract for crane coatings work in the Southport Terminals area at Port Everglades.
The $1,624,970 bid by Groome Industrial Service, of Waldwick, NJ, was the lowest of three bids, ranging up to $3 million.
Scope of Work
The project involves recoating five cranes. The owner accepted base bids for three cranes and exercised an option for two more. Crane surfaces with intact coatings will be high-pressure-water blasted at 7,500-10,000 psi, while visibly corroded steel will be ultra-high-pressure waterjetted or commercial-grade power-tool cleaned (SSPC-SP 15).
The existing coatings do not contain lead.
The cranes will be recoated with an epoxy spot-primer, an epoxy intermediate, and a urethane finish. The contract includes erecting Class 2W containment structures (SSPC-Guide 6). The contract includes stipulations for quickly tearing down the containment enclosures to allow for as-needed unloading of containers from incoming vessels.
