Global Power’s Services Segment Awarded New Contracts
IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC: GLPW) (“Global Power” or the “Company”) today announced new contract awards from the Tennessee Valley Authority (“TVA”) and the Jacksonville Electric Authority (“JEA”), a community-owned utility that serves 455,000 electric and 337,000 water customers.
The TVA Board of Directors authorized TVA to enter into a $950 million, 5-year contract with G•UB•MK Constructors (“GUBMK”) for non-nuclear modifications and supplemental maintenance. Based upon performance, there is an opportunity for an additional 5-year extension. GUBMK is an unincorporated joint venture between WorleyParsons Group Inc., Williams Plant Services, LLC, and AECOM. Williams Plant Services, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Power’s Williams Industrial Services Group, LLC (”WISG”), the Company’s Services segment.
Global Power receives 33% of the net profits generated by the joint venture. In addition, Global Power provides supervision and other services to GUBMK. This contract supersedes the contract extension that was previously announced on August 25, 2015. GUBMK was formed over 25 years ago and has been providing maintenance and modification services to TVA since 1991.
WISG, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Williams Industrial Services, LLC, also was awarded a contract by JEA for general construction services for fossil-fuel power generating plants. In addition, JEA communicated its intent to award a water and waste water general construction services contract to WISG’s subsidiary. Each contract is for a 5-year term and valued at approximately $8 million to $10 million. WISG has been providing service to JEA since 1989.
Loren Monty, President of Global Power’s Services segment, commented, “We value our long-standing relationships with these customers and are committed to provide them safe, reliable and timely service consistently, as we have over many years. Importantly, these awards also demonstrate the diversity of our service offerings.”
