Interserve secures £265m DIO contract extension

Interserve has secured a two-year contract extension with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation worth up to £265m.

The contractor will provide infrastructure support alongside planned and reactive work at four international bases for the Joint Forces Command (JFC): the Falkland Islands, Ascension Island, Gibraltar and Cyprus.

Interserve will also provide a number 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.

The firm has worked with the JFC across its operating bases for more than 10 years.

Chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “With extensive defence expertise and a 10-year track record working with the DIO and JFC on this specific portfolio, we are well equipped to meet the varied and changing requirements of our armed forces across these strategic sites.

“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.”

The contract is the latest major deal that Interserve has won with the DIO, after the firm bagged a £230m contract to provide support services to the United States Air Force’s UK estate in April last year.
