A contract to upgrade the power station, boiler house and district heating system at the Mount Pleasant complex on the Falkland Islands has been signed.
InCon are privileged to have been awarded, as part of a £55.7 million infrastructure contract, the opportunity to provide Non-Destructive Testing & Inspection Services for this crucial project.
The announcement comes after the Defence Secretary visited the Falkland Islands, and forms part of his commitment of £180 million investment over the next decade to modernise the military infrastructure on the Islands.
The Defence Secretary said:
“The upgrading of these facilities is an important part of our major investment plan to deliver better infrastructure for our armed forces. Alongside our recent contract to improve Mare harbour, we are boosting our defensive capability and supporting the Islands. This latest contract is expected to be followed by investment to improve new services accommodation at the 3 Radar Heads.
There are currently around 1,200 military and civilian personnel based in the Falklands supporting defensive air, naval and land assets, including RAF Typhoon aircraft, helicopters, Royal Navy patrol vessels and an army infantry company.”
Paul Whitfield, Managing Director at InCon said:
“This four-year contract award follows a rigorous and exacting selection process for us. We look forward to delivering efficient, integrated and innovative inspection services and working with partners in our trademark collaborative manner. “
