CIBER Federal, a division of CIBER, Inc. (NYSE: CBR), won a $14.1 million contract with the Misurata Free Zone to design and install a comprehensive security system for Phase 1 of this new facility.
The Misurata Free Zone, located in Libya, provides the north coast of Africa with a central hub for industrial, service and commercial activities. This 13.6-square-mile facility features a port for the trans-shipment of goods across the Mediterranean.
“We are delighted to extend our services into this region,” said Marcia Kim, CIBER Federal President. “CIBER offers premier port and physical security systems and this new opportunity places CIBER on the global map when it comes to the design and delivery of these systems.”
CIBER’s contract is to provide a port security program that delivers command and control capabilities for the access control, land/water systems and port ingress/egress systems to be installed as part of the project. CIBER will design, install and maintain this comprehensive security system. This 18-month project will deliver state-of-the-art security to the Zone as it prepares to become a major nucleus for trade activities in the region.
“CIBER provided the most technically inclusive solution at the best price,” said Omer M. Smaida, senior engineer for the Misurata Free Zone. “Their spirit of partnership and willingness to work with us through this year-long procurement process were major factors in their selection. In addition, the completion of this project will represent a major milestone in diversifying Libya’s economy.”
This contract was executed by Dr. Muftah Azzoz, Chairman for the Misurata Free Zone, and Thomas W. Carter, Jr., Vice President of Contracts, CIBER.
