Consultant WYG has been appointed by the Ministry of Defence on a two-year contract to support infrastructure work which will help UK forces continue to operate efficiently and support Afghan authorities.
Under the contract WYG will provide designs for a wide range of projects in support of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters including operating services, hangers and maintenance facilities, as well as providing infrastructure for Afghan authorities.
Based in Camp Bastion, the main military base in Afghanistan and home to more than 20,000 people, WYG will work alongside the UK Works Group, a multi-disciplinary team made up of 60 Royal Engineers rotating in and out of Afghanistan, to manage and maintain the infrastructure throughout the Camp and on other operating bases in the country.
Contracted for two years WYG will make up what is known as the Civilian Engineering Support Team (CEST), working within secure UK Forces locations.
The contract win was announced alongside results for the year ending 31 March, the first since a wholesale restructuring of the business in June 2011. The results confirmed that the company is performing as expected, with revenue at £139.9M, up on £121.5M in the nine months to 31 March 2011.
