Bruce Stanski, President, Fluor Government Group.

IRVING, US: The US Army awarded Fluor Corporation a new Task Order to perform work in Africa under the Army’s Logistics Capabilities Programme IV (LOGCAP IV). The Task Order is in support of US Africa Command’s mission to protect American interests and strengthen Africa’s defense capabilities in the region. With the new award, Fluor’s scope of work will include delivering logistical support throughout Continental Africa and the simultaneous construction of several remote camps.

Fluor will also provide the subsequent camp operations and logistical support services over the next 21 months. Support services will include the provisioning of food, fuel, water, laundry, showers, vehicles, and power generation and maintenance. The camps will provide a base of operations for US troops who are advising and assisting African military forces across the continent.

“With our 62 years of experience across Africa, Fluor has the reach and experience needed for this critical mission. It doesn’t matter how remote the location or challenging the project, we stand shoulder to shoulder with our customers wherever they go. As the requirements in Africa evolve and expand, we will be there to support the US military and its mission,” said Bruce Stanski, President, Fluor Government Group.
