14.1M to Enhance Camp Lejeune’s MOUT Training Facilities
Virtexco Corporation in Norfolk, VA won $14.1 million for firm-fixed-price task order #0004 under a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity, multiple award construction contract (N40085-06-D-4010). They will improve the Military Operations Urban Terrain (MOUT) training at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, adding an urban combat training area of approximately 75 buildings and training structures. Work will be performed in Jacksonville, NC, and is expected to be complete by Oct. 2009. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Mid-Atlantic in Norfolk, VA received 3 proposals for this task order.
Urban operations are seen as a consistent feature of future conflicts, as well as current operations. Heavy investments have also been made in the USMC’s California facilities at Twentynine Palms.
