$546K Tank Contract Awarded


A Georgia general contractor has been awarded a $546,300 contract for tank and tower cleaning and coating work in Clermont, FL.

The project involves cleaning and recoating a 500,000-gallon Bloxam tank and repainting the logo on a 400,000-gallon Eastern Service Area tower.

The project was awarded to Utility Service Co. Inc. of Perry, GA. The company was the second-lowest bidder, and bested six other bids that reached as high as $1,403,400.

Spensieri Diversified LLC, which had submitted the lowest bid of $386,290, requested that its bid be withdrawn due to mathematical errors.

Scope of Work

The 96-foot-tall Bloxam tank interior will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Near-White finish (SSPC-SP 10) and lined with one full coat of aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, a stripe coat of polyamidoamine epoxy, and two full coats of polyamidoamine epoxy lining systems for use with potable water.

Interior pillar surfaces will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6) and coated with an inorganic hybrid water-based epoxy and a coat of HDP acrylic polymer.

The tank exterior will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6) with a lead-stabilizing abrasive additive and coated with an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, an aliphatic acrylic polyurethane intermediate and an advanced thermoset fluoropolymer polyurethane finish.

Additional work includes installing a new roof vent, repairing the overflow inlet weir, and installing or repairing miscellaneous tank attachments.

The contractor will coordinate with the owner to obtain confirmation on sizing, orientation, and location of the logo on the 140-foot-tall Eastern Area Service tower. Logo coatings will be the same as the specified topcoat.
