JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Navy recently awarded three Jacksonville-area companies the contracts to repair damage at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Harry Pepper & Associates Inc. was awarded the largest of the three contracts to repair waterfront property at the Navy installation.

"After suffering significant damage to the base, I am glad to see some of the money coming in to repair some of the infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Sandy last year," said NS GTMO Commanding Officer Capt. John Nettleton. "The planned marina repairs and refurbishment will greatly benefit the service members and residents who serve in this isolated duty station."

In all, some $16.4 million in repairs will be made by locally based companies, according to a press release.

The repair projects are expected to be completed sometime in the year 2015.
