KBR has received a $75m recompete contract from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Europe Africa Central to upgrade the infrastructure of multiple US bases in Djibouti, Africa.

As part of the five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, KBR will offer engineering, design, construction, refurbishment, repair, maintenance, demolition and other related services at Lemonnier Camp and Chabelley Airfield.

This work is said to complement the company’s main operational support across Africa.

The company has provided basic operational support services at the Lemon Valley camp since 2013 and has provided work in the area since 2002.

KBR Government Solutions President Byron Bright said: “KBR will continue its legacy of delivering trustworthy results and expertise to the US Navy through this award.

“We are proud to be a part of strengthening these bases for our troops and allies.”

KBR team in Africa completed more than 25 million hours for the key services with no recorded accidents, the company said.

In May this year, KBR secured two task orders worth a total of $140m to support the engineering and rapid prototyping efforts for the US Navy.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee task orders were awarded by the US Air Force (USAF) Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) under the Department of Defense Information (DoD) Analysis Center’s (IAC) multiple-award contract.

In February, KBR was awarded a logistics information technology (IT) services and equipment contract to support the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

Valued at $276m, the order was awarded under the Alliant 2 Unrestricted Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).
