Reconstruction work to begin at An Numiniyah, Iraq
Work will start soon on a $65.4 million project to rebuild the An Numiniyah military base for the Iraqi Armed Forces. The project is funded through the Project Management Office (PMO) of the US-backed Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA).
The CPA intends to involve Iraqi sources of subcontractors, suppliers and labor, stated a press release. The PMO manages the $18.4 billion provided by the US Congress to support the reconstruction of Iraqi infrastructure.
The An Numiniyah project, located southeast of Baghdad, includes the renovation of existing buildings and infrastructure on the base and the construction of new facilities to support operations and training. The prime contractor is US-based Earth Tech.
Work will also be performed on the water supply, wastewater treatment and power services at the base. The work is expected to be complete in approximately mid-April 2004. — (menareport.com)
