The UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has awarded a contract extension worth up to £500m to Interserve Group.
The contract extension will give the opportunity for Interserve to continue providing infrastructure support for the British Armed Forces’ four strategic international bases in the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Ascension Island.
Awarded on behalf of the Joint Forces Command (JFC), the contract will see Interserve continue to perform planned and reactive work to maintain the sites.
Interserve Group CEO Debbie White said: “I am delighted the Defence Infrastructure Organisation has chosen to extend this important contract with Interserve.
“We are uniquely equipped to meet the varied and changing facilities management requirements of the UK Armed Forces across the defence estate, helping to ensure critical infrastructure is serviced and maintained effectively.
“This contract win is illustrative of our extensive defence facilities management expertise and aligns with our strategy to developing long-term relationships with clients such as the DIO.”
Site-specific services include aircraft handling at Ascension Island, power generation, water treatment and plant management in the Falklands, as well as support for visiting vessels in Gibraltar.
The company has performed the permanent joint operating bases contracts with the DIO and JFC for 20 years in the South Atlantic and more than a decade in the Mediterranean.
Furthermore, Interserve is a provider of facilities services at the US Air Force’s UK estate.
The company also handles other projects that include providing support services for the DIO’s military training estate.
In June 2017, the construction firm secured a two-year contract extension for the provision of infrastructure support for British Armed Forces bases.
