The United States’ Agency for International Development has awarded a combined contract to three separate companies to provide water and energy development projects in Afghanistan.

Construction, engineering and support services will be provided by the firms, who include Tetra Tech.

Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO said of the indefinite quantity contract (IDQ):

“This new program builds on our previous efforts related to water supply, sanitation, and energy in Afghanistan, where we are addressing critical needs as part of USAID’s integrated international development effort.”

The firm will be involved in the construction of irrigation dams, large multi-purpose reservoirs and energy production and energy saving work.

Tetra Tech previously helped to re-build the Afghan National Army base including 100 buildings, water services and roads at Kabul, Mazer-e-Sharif and Gardez. They also worked with AWS Truepower to map wind patterns in Afghanistan and locate an ideal place for wind turbines given energy needs, the presence of extensive mines and unexploded ordnance risks.
