The facilities will be built on a 269-acre site at Romania’s Deveselu Air Base under a USS$134m (£88m) contract for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District.
It be the world’s first operational installation of the Aegis Ashore missile defence system, which is a land-based variant of the Navy’s shipboard Aegis Air and Ballistic Missile Defense System.
Under the contract, KBR will relocate a four-storey radar deckhouse structure from the east coast of the USA to Romania. In Romania, KBR will build all of the facilities and infrastructure required to support the Aegis Ashore weapon system including roads, support buildings, communications, security and utilities.
“This award demonstrates KBR’s strong technical and project management capabilities, as well as our proven history of performing large, technically challenging projects around the world,” said Andy Summers, group president, KBR Infrastructure, Government and Power. “KBR is honored to have been selected to provide support of vital services to the US Department of Defense and we look forward to the successful and safe completion of this project.”
