KBR has received a $23.7M modification to a previously awarded contract covering a range of services to support operations at the Shaikh Isa Air Base in Bahrain.

The award has a one-year base period and a three-month option, KBR said Tuesday. The modification extends the initial five-year contract issued in 2014.

KBR secured the modification through Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia. Prior to the modification’s award, the company provided similar support services at the air base under the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program.

Work under the modification includes facility maintenance, galley and custodial services, power generation, vehicular support, and water purification and delivery.

“Whether we are providing clean water, keeping the power on or maintaining safe facilities, KBR is committed to meeting the needs of the U.S. military men and women stationed at this installation,” said  Byron Bright, president of KBR’s U.S. government solutions arm.

KBR has provided base operations support to U.S. and allied forces for more than 75 years.
