Interserve awarded contract extension for UK’s international armed forces bases

Interserve Group Limited has been awarded a three-year contract extension worth up to £500 million to continue as the infrastructure support provider for the UK Armed Forces’ four strategic international bases in the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Ascension Island.

The extension has been awarded by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) on behalf of the Joint Forces Command (JFC).

The contract means Interserve will remain 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.

Debbie White, Chief Executive Officer, Interserve Group Limited said: “I am delighted the Defence Infrastructure Organisation has chosen to extend this important contract with Interserve. We have a proven track record of working with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and Joint Forces Command.

“This contract win is illustrative of our extensive defence facilities management expertise and aligns with our strategy to developing long-term relationships with clients such as the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.”

Interserve 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 Company also provides facilities services at the US Air Force’s UK estate. Other key projects include providing support services for the DIO’s military training estate, as well as contracts for specific Ministry of Defence bases.
