A busy week for Amec.

Fresh from news that Wood Group, the Aberdeen-based oilfield services company, has launched a £2.2bn bid to buy it, Amec Foster Wheeler says it has snagged a contract worth up to $950m with the US Air Force, to “sustain and improve Air Force and other Department of Defense installations”.

Some of the work includes unexploded bombs and radiological waste, but the contract also also means the company will compete for a range of construction and renovation orders, some “in environments that can be remote and challenging around the world”.

Ann Massey, president of the company’s environment and infrastructure business, said:

We are honoured to receive this contract which is a testament to our proud history of successfully delivering on Air Force Civil Engineer Centre projects for more than 25 years.
