WASHINGTON — Berger/Cummins, a joint venture between Louis Berger Power and Cummins Power Generation, was awarded a contract modification to its existing contract to supply the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) with generator sets to support the disaster relief efforts of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Under this contract, Berger/Cummins facilitates the rapid deployment of generator sets to aid FEMA in the protection against, response to, recovery from, or mitigation of threatened or actual catastrophic disasters and emergencies, both natural and man-made, in the U.S. and its overseas territories. To date, in support of Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Berger/Cummins has supplied over 450 gensets of various sizes with a total deployed capacity of more than 125 megawatts.

“We are extremely proud of our efforts to support local communities to withstand and recover from natural disasters and emergencies, and stand ready to continue to assist DLA and FEMA in their important disaster relief efforts,” said Ana Potter, Emergency Response Manager, Louis Berger Power.

Berger/Cummins previously supported Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in 2012-13 by providing emergency gensets for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Long Island, New York, and in lower Manhattan for New York City’s office of emergency management. In 2011, Berger/Cummins also inspected, serviced and repaired more than 600 government-owned gensets in FEMA warehouses in Frederick, Maryland, Atlanta, Georgia and Fort Worth, Texas.
