HOUSTON, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- KBR was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to serve as a contingency electrical power generation contractor in Afghanistan.

Under the award, KBR will provide electrical power generation in support of U.S. military operations at forward operating bases.

The award is a multiple award task order and KBR will bid individual task orders on a competitive basis.

The overall contact has a ceiling value of $490 million over five years. The performance contracts are awarded as indefinite-delivery/Indefinite-quantity contracts with one base year and four option years.

KBR's immediate customer will be the USACE Philadelphia District, which will administer the contract. The field customer is the U.S. Army Central Command.

"KBR is pleased to further our service to the U.S. government in Afghanistan as a provider of electrical power for our military troops," said Mark Williams, group president, Infrastructure, Government and Power. "We have provided a range of support services, including electrical power, to the U.S. military in Afghanistan continuously since 2002."
