POWER Expands CENTCOM Engineering Support Into Iraq

February 2004

HAILEY, IDAHO — POWER Engineers, Inc., a leading U.S. provider of engineering services, with offices worldwide, is a subcontractor with Perini Corporation, one of 10 firms awarded new contracts for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Programs Center. The contract is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for design and construction work throughout the U.S. Central Command Area of Responsibility (CENTCOM-AOR), which includes 25 countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan. This contract has a potential value of $1.5 billion, with maximum values of $500 million for the base year, and $250 million each for four option years.

POWER, with Perini, is currently providing engineering services for design/build projects in Iraq and Afghanistan, under a one-year IDIQ contract with a $500 million ceiling that was awarded last year. The majority of this work is for power generation and high voltage transmission projects throughout the southern portion of Iraq. These include new construction and refurbishment of generation facilities, repair and reconstruction of 400kV power transmission lines and reconstruction of low voltage switchgear facilities.

Assignments under the new IDIQ contract will support the Corps of Engineers on a wide variety of engineering and construction projects within the CENTCOM AOR. The tasks could involve new construction and/or rehabilitation of existing facilities.

“We are excited to continue our work with Perini on these important projects,” said Bill Eisinger, a POWER Engineers vice president and Manager of Transmission & Distribution Engineering. “We are helping to repair Iraq’s electrical power system, which impacts the lives of the Iraqi people, their economy, and the future of their country.”

POWER Engineers is a global consulting engineering firm specializing in energy, facilities and communications projects. Founded in 1976, POWER is an employee-owned company with offices throughout the United States and abroad.
