Louis Berger Power previously managed the installation, maintenance, and operation of the five-megawatt power plant from May of 2015 to November of 2017.  The Power team identified and responded to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) need for safe, reliable power in this austere region, and was able to perform significant grid expansion to provide prime power to the guard towers.

Louis Berger Power will continue to oversee the maintenance and operation of the power plant and electrical grid under this new contract, which includes the options for a plant increase from five to seven megawatts or a reduction from five megawatts to three.

“It was a good win for Louis Berger Power,” said Ray Mardini, vice president, Louis Berger Power. “Although we were the incumbent, it was our first win under our GSA Schedule contract. We are proud to continue to serve the U.S. military in contingency environments.”

Louis Berger Power was awarded a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 03 Facilities Maintenance Management (FAC) contract in June of 2017 upon demonstration of its capacity to effectively deliver solutions in its targeted market.
