FluorAMEC Joint Venture Awarded Iraq Contracts
FluorAMEC has been awarded two contracts by the U.S. Department of Defense to reconstruct Iraq's public works and water sector infrastructure.
The joint-venture contracts have ceilings of US$600 million and US$500 million, respectively. Work on the contracts, which have been awarded on a cost-reimbursable basis, is expected to start shortly.
Under these contracts, FluorAMEC will provide design-build construction services for the rehabilitation of existing, and construction of new, potable water distribution and treatment systems, municipal sewer collection and treatment systems, and solid waste management systems throughout Iraq.
The two contracts, to restore public works and water infrastructure, form part of the major round of contracts currently being awarded by the Coalition Provisional Authority, the US-led body in charge of Iraq reconstruction. They follow the award in March 2004 to Fluor-AMEC of a contract to restore power generation facilities worth up to US$500 million (AMEC share up to US$240 million).
Fluor - AMEC also has a bid outstanding for justice and security infrastructure work across Iraq worth up to US$900 million and expects to hear about the outcome in early April 2004.
