FluorAMEC joint venture wins $500 million Iraqi water contract
US-based Fluor Corporation's joint venture, FluorAMEC has been awarded two contracts by the US Department of Defense to reconstruct Iraq's public works and water sector infrastructure. Values of the two joint-venture contracts have ceilings of $600 million and $500 million, respectively.
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.
These awards are two of 10 major reconstruction contracts being awarded by the Department of Defense in support of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) Program Management Office (PMO) for services in the sectors of energy, water, transportation, security and services. FluorAMEC previously was awarded a Department of Defense contract for design-build construction services in the electrical sector. — (menareport.com)
