LOS ANGELES, Nov 09, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has been awarded additional work on its existing six-year, US$149.3-million agreement to provide program management services to the New Doha Port project in Qatar.
The new work includes a 20-month project extension and $58.8-million add-on award. AECOM's fees on the project are now expected to total US$208.1 million.
Undertaken by the Government of Qatar, the port project, which has a construction value of approximately US$6 billion, is currently the world's largest "greenfield" port-development project. The add-on work is related to program management services for an expansion of Phase 1 of the new commercial port development, the addition of a Qatari naval base to the project and the creation of an industrial canal for a new economic development zone.
