US-based essential risk management and mission support services provider Constellis has won a $198m task order from the US Department of Defense (DoD) to provide security operations at Camp Arifjan and Camp Buehring in Kuwait.

The task order is a part of the US DoD’s Security Support Services (SSS) infinite-delivery, infinite-quantity (IDIQ) out of the Army Contracting Command at Rock Island.

The four-year task order includes a base year plus three additional optional years.

Commencing this month, work will be performed by Constellis’ company Triple Canopy.

In the last nine years, Triple Canopy has been assisting the DoD and Area Support Group (ASG) in Kuwait and across the region.

In Kuwait, Triple Canopy provided support services, including police administration, law enforcement, access control, static and roving security, security force supervision, support for security and force protection technological equipment.

The company also provided training for security forces and protection of US Army installations, materials, property, and personnel.

Constellis CEO Tim Reardon said: “We are very pleased to be part of this new contract after nearly a decade of providing essential operations in Kuwait.

“It is important work, and we’re proud to continue supporting the DOD’s programmes in the region.”

In October last year, the US Government approved a potential sale of 19 M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lifting Extraction System (HERCULES) recovery vehicles to Kuwait.
