KBR has received a contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to design, manufacture, supply and store a Combat Water Supply System (CWSS), the company announced on 14 March.

The $42 million contract also includes reimbursable maintenance, repairs, and operations services.

KBR will bring in to service a water purification, storage and distribution system, designed to deliver potable and palatable water to deployed UK forces. Once operational, KBR will provide fully integrated contractor logistics support through to 2025 with responsibility for the design, manufacture, testing and supply of each of the CWSS variants.

The CWSS programme aims to deliver an end-to-end solution covering the provision of water from its source to the point of use. Specifically, CWSS will be required to purify water from various sources, test and assure water quality, store, distribute and issue water to doctrinally mandated volumes.

KBR will be responsible for the maintenance of the CWSS capability to agreed readiness and availability levels during the contractor logistics support phase.

Jay Ibrahim, president, EMEA, KBR, said: ‘We are extremely proud of our long standing record in delivering operational support to the UK MoD. This award is a reflection of the confidence that the MoD places in us to deliver critical operational infrastructure and is testament to the collaborative relationship that has been built over many years of working side by side with the UK's armed forces.’
