IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 10, 2012--
Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that the U.S. Army awarded
the company a new Task Order to perform work in Africa under the Army’s
Logistics Capabilities Program IV (LOGCAP IV). The Task Order is in
support of U.S. Africa Command’s mission to protect American interests
and strengthen Africa’s defense capabilities in the region. Fluor will
book the work into backlog in the first quarter of 2012.
With the new award, Fluor’s scope of work will include delivering
logistical support throughout Continental Africa and the simultaneous
construction of several remote camps. Fluor will also provide the
subsequent camp operations and logistical support services over the next
21 months. Support services will include the provisioning of food, fuel,
water, laundry, showers, vehicles, and power generation and maintenance.
The camps will provide a base of operations for U.S. troops who are
advising and assisting African military forces across the continent.
“With our 62 years of experience across Africa, Fluor has the reach and
experience needed for this critical mission,” said Bruce Stanski,
president of Fluor’s Government Group. “It doesn’t matter how remote the
location or challenging the project, we stand shoulder to shoulder with
our customers wherever they go. As the requirements in Africa evolve and
expand, we will be there to support the U.S. military and its mission.”
Since 2007, Fluor has provided military support services to the U.S.
Army under the LOGCAP IV program. At more than 60 bases across the
northern region of Afghanistan, Fluor supports more than 84,000 military
personnel and contractors. U.S. troops rely on Fluor for a warm meal, a
hot shower, clean laundry, and vehicle maintenance. Through the local
employment-focused Afghan First program, Fluor provides jobs to more
than 8,600 Afghans.
