Interserve, the international support services, construction and equipment services group, has signed a three-year contract extension worth up to £500 million to continue as the infrastructure support provider for the UK Armed Forces' four strategic overseas bases.
The sites are in the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Ascension Island.
The extension was awarded by the Ministry of Defence's Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) arm on behalf of the Joint Forces Command (JFC).
This means that Interserve will remain responsible for planned and reactive work to maintain infrastructure at the bases.
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.
Interserve has extensive experience in delivering infrastructure support services at diverse and complex sites and has held the permanent joint operating bases contracts with the DIO and JFC for 20 years in the South Atlantic and more than a decade in the Mediterranean.
The group also provides FM services at the US Air Force's estate in the UK.
Other key projects include providing support services for the DIO's military training estate, as well as contracts for specific MoD bases.
