POWER Engineers Joins Team In Re-Building U.S. Central Command’s Area of Operations and Afghanistan

April 2003

HAILEY, IDAHO — POWER Engineers, Inc., a leading U.S. provider of engineering services headquartered in Idaho with offices around the country, will assist Perini Corporation, one of three firms awarded contracts by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Transatlantic Programs Center, to re-build facilities in the U.S. Central Command’s area of operations. Under a separate Corps contract, POWER will also support Perini Corporation on various design-build facilities for the graduating battalions of the Afghanistan National Army in Afghanistan.

The contract for the U.S. Central Command area of operations is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a value of up to $100 million during a performance period of one year. It provides for new construction, restorations, renovation and repair, design-build, and O&M services to respond to the contingency needs that might arise within the U.S. Central Command area. The area of operations encompasses 25 nations from the Horn of Africa to central Asia, including the Arabian Peninsula and the northern Red Sea regions. POWER Engineers will provide engineering and design services for power-related projects resulting from this IDIQ contract. In addition to POWER Engineers, the Perini team includes Tetra Tech, Willbros Group and Najad Rock Group.

POWER is also teamed with Perini for another contract awarded by the Corps’ Transatlantic Programs Center for the design and construction of facilities to support the First Brigade of the Afghan National Army near the Afghanistan capital city of Kabul. The fast-track project consists of barracks, dining facilities, and infrastructure, including a power plant, a water treatment facility and a wastewater treatment plant. Perini’s team for this contract also includes Tetra Tech and Azad Architects.

“We are excited to be working with Perini on both of these contracts at such an important time,” said Bill Eisinger, a POWER Engineers vice president and Manager of Transmission & Distribution Engineering. “POWER is a natural choice for this work because of our solid knowledge of the power sector and our past experience with the Army Corps of Engineers.” POWER has provided engineering to upgrade electrical facilities for a number of military installations under other Corps of Engineers contracts.
