Perini Corporation Awarded $66 Million Task Order to Restore Electricity in Southern Iraq
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--Perini Corporation announced the award of a $66 million Task Order under its contingency contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Programs Center, to restore power lines and rehabilitate power facilities in southern Iraq.
The Corps of Engineers is part of an interagency Iraqi power team, guided by the Coalition Provisional Authority and the Iraq Ministry of Electricity, and the task order work will support ongoing efforts in Iraq to repair the electrical infrastructure.
Under the task order, Perini will also support the development of a logistics management system to inventory, procure and distribute parts, which will enable the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity to make necessary repairs to their systems.
The Perini team includes Tetra Tech, POWER Engineers, Nimrod, and Willbros Group.
Perini's contingency contract, which was originally awarded in April for $100 million, is expected to be increased to a ceiling of $500 million, with the performance period to remain at one year. Other awards received under the contingency contract include approximately $25 million in design-build renovations and repairs at army bases in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Robert Band, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated "We are proud to be assisting our government's effort to rebuild the electrical infrastructure of Iraq."
