KBR's Portfolio of Australian Water and Transport Infrastructure Projects Grows

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - March 02, 2017) - KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded additional contracts to provide professional services for major Australian infrastructure projects:

  • KBR, in a team with Laing O'Rourke and AECOM, is delivering the Torrens Rail Junction Project in Adelaide, South Australia. The project will improve the productivity of the national rail freight network by separating the freight and passenger rail lines that intersect at Torrens Junction. The passenger line will be lowered below the freight railway and adjacent roadways, extending for around 1.4 kilometers. KBR is providing design and engineering services for the rail design and associated civil structures. The project is expected to be completed in early 2018.
  • KBR has also been awarded a contract for independent verification services by Sydney Desalination Plant Pty Limited for its desalination plant rebuild works and associated systems commissioning. The project is expected to be completed by December 2018. KBR previously provided Independent Verification services for the original construction of the Sydney Desalination Plant and has continued to provide engineering services for a range of projects since that time.

"These latest awards continue to build on KBR's strong portfolio of Australian transport and water infrastructure projects," said Greg Conlon, President Asia Pacific.

"KBR has an enduring commitment to our customers in the Asia Pacific region and we are pleased to be involved in these strategic initiatives that create long term value for Australia's infrastructure particularly in relation to the country's metropolitan and national rail systems," continued Conlon.

Revenue associated with these projects is undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Engineering & Construction Business Segment in Q1 2017.
