HOUSTON – (September 11, 2017) – KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global Government Services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $441 million contract for base operations support services by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic. KBRwyle will perform these services primarily at Naval Support Facility Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, as well as at Chabelley Air Field in Djibouti and Camp Simba in Manda Bay, Kenya.
Under the terms of the contract, KBRwyle will provide a broad spectrum of support in areas including public safety; air operations; ordnance; supply; morale, welfare and recreation; galley; facilities; utilities; vehicles and equipment; and environmental. The contract has a one-year base period and seven one-year options.
KBRwyle has provided base operating support services for the U.S. Navy at Camp Lemonnier, the largest U.S. base in Africa, since 2013. Despite the austere, remote and hostile environment, KBRwyle has over 15 million hours without a lost-time incident. Prior to 2013, KBRwyle held the original Djibouti base operating support services contract from 2003 to 2007.
"KBRwyle is honored to continue providing our operations and maintenance expertise to U.S. Naval facilities around the world," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO.
