Interserve wins £265m extension to defence contract

Interserve has won a two-year contract extension to continue providing infrastructure support at four international bases of the UK’s armed forces.

The contract, which is worth up to £265m, covers bases in the Falkland Islands and Ascension Island in the South Atlantic Ocean, as well as Gibraltar and Cyprus in the Mediterranean. It has been awarded by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) on behalf of the Joint Forces Command (JFC).

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. It has the Permanent Joint Operating Bases contracts with the DIO and JFC for over 10 years.

Interserve chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “From supporting visiting vessels in Gibraltar to delivering aircraft services at Ascension Island, the smooth running of these Permanent Joint Operating Bases is vital to the security of our Armed Forces and the civilians that they protect. We are extremely proud to support the building and maintenance of the infrastructure required for our country's defence efforts both at home and abroad.”
