Work at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti and Manda Bay, Kenya will include public safety, air operations, facility support, vehicle maintenance and environmental services.

“KBR having such a long history at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti makes this award especially exciting and rewarding, ” said Rich Ambrose, president for North American government and logistics. “We look forward to working with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Atlantic, the contracting agency.”
