KBR has announced that the company has reinforced its growing presence in the UK Nuclear and Defence Infrastructure sectors after being selected to join a seven-year, multi-million dollar delivery framework, the company reported on Friday. The framework is valued between $295 million and $470 million to support DIO and includes the option of a three year extension.
"We will drive positive innovation and change through working collaboratively to support the Clyde Infrastructure Programme. Combining our Government, Defence and cross industry experience, digital capability and respected program management capabilities to provide innovative solutions for the wide ranging projects ahead at this strategically important Royal Navy base," said Andrew Barrie, KBR President, Government Solutions EMEA.
KBR has partnered with Assystem and Doosan Babcock, and has been operated under the name of KAD Nuclear, were one of three suppliers selected by the Defence Infrastructure Organization (DIO) to join the new Nuclear Technical Support Provider (NTSP) framework.
"This is a fantastic achievement – one that highlights our dedication to a truly collaborative approach and enhances our position within the UK defence and nuclear sectors," added Barrie.
NTSP will deliver engineering and project management services for the naval base infrastructure upgrade and specialist nuclear technical services to the Navy Command and other UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) organizations.
The framework will also support the Clyde Infrastructure Programme (CIP) and wider Royal Navy and defence requirements. NTSP will focus on delivering the refurbishment and upgrade of critical infrastructure at Her Majesty's Naval Base (HMNB) Clyde.
Charles Hoskins, DIO's Clyde Infrastructure Programme Director, said: "The NTSP is vitally important to the delivery of our major infrastructure programme and wider operations at HMNB Clyde. The expertise and collaborative approach from our new partners will be crucial to our success as we move forward into the exciting and challenging next chapter of our programme."
