Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a two-year contract extension worth up to £265m to continue as the infrastructure support provider for four strategic international UK Armed Forces bases.
The contract has been awarded by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) on behalf of the Joint Forces Command (JFC).
The four sites comprise the JFC's international permanent joint operating bases in the Falkland Islands and Ascension Island in the South Atlantic Ocean, as well as Gibraltar and Cyprus in the Mediterranean. Interserve is responsible for infrastructure support at the bases, including planned and reactive work to maintain the sites.
The company also provides a range of site-specific services across the bases, such as aircraft handling at Ascension Island, power generation, water treatment and plant management in the Falklands, and support for visiting vessels in Gibraltar.
