KBR has secured the Heating Systems Energy Efficiency Study by the National Environment Agency (NEA) to provide consultancy services to study the energy performance of heating systems in energy intensive industrial facilities in Singapore, the company reported on Monday.

"Being given the opportunity to work on this study is indicative of KBR's capabilities and skillsets across complex industrial assets and demonstrates KBR's strategic commitment to sustainability, energy efficiency and decarbonization," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions Services. 

KBR will improve energy efficiency and will be evaluated leading to an implementation and improvement roadmap for each facility. In addition, KBR will develop a best practice guide for the oil refining, petrochemical and chemical sub-sectors. The project will be executed primarily from KBR's consulting hub in Singapore, leveraging on the specialist skills of the wider KBR consulting and engineering groups. 

The company was recently certified in Singapore as an Energy Service Company (ESCO) to assist industrial facilities with energy optimization services. This complements KBR's strengths in feasibility studies and detailed engineering designs to bring energy savings into reality.

"We are excited to be a part of this significant project and to continue to grow and maintain a substantial presence in Asia Pacific," Ibrahim added.

KBR has also been awarded a contract for international engineering services to support Bahrain Air Base Operations in Nov. 2019. Under a potential $23.7 million contract modification from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia, the company will continue to support the base throughout 2020. 

The company said Nov. 19 it will maintain base vehicle, grounds, galley and facilities; provide custodial services; and support power and water distribution and diesel fuel operations at the installation.

“Whether we are providing clean water, keeping the power on or maintaining safe facilities, KBR is committed to meeting the needs of the U.S. military men and women stationed at this installation,” said Byron Bright, president of KBR’s U.S. government solutions business.
