KBR Awarded Contract by Scottish and Southern Energy Plc (SSE) to Provide Project Management Services
KBR (NYSE: KBR) today announced that it has been awarded a contract by Scottish and Southern Energy Plc (SSE) to provide Project Management Services for its capital investment program over the next five years.
SSE has appointed KBR as Project Management Partner to help maintain the processes, systems and skills needed to deliver large capital projects. KBR will supplement and complement the work performed by SSE’s in-house major projects team. The SSE team has been augmented in recent months, to increase its capacity to manage major projects.
SSE’s program covers the full spectrum of capital investment including new power generation, modification of existing power stations and construction of transmission assets at a wide range of locations in the UK. KBR will apply its international project management experience throughout the full project life-cycle by developing the best solutions and delivering them on time to budget.
“KBR is proud to partner with SSE on this project,” said Jim Stewart, President, KBR Power & Industrial. “Our partnership with SSE will also form the basis on which KBR will develop its power business in the UK and internationally. It is equally satisfying for KBR to renew its long-standing presence in Scotland. Our association with the North Sea Oil & Gas industry dates back to the construction of the first offshore platform in 1965.”
KBR is a global engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure, power and industrial markets. For more information, visit www.kbr.com.
