United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq is looking for a contract for the rental of Fork Lifts, Cranes and Dump Trucks inside the UNAMI-Basrah Compound at the US Consulate General Compound (PRT), Iraq.

The COB Military Base site is within the vicinity of Basrah International Airport.

Work will be on ‘as-and-when required’ basis for general engineering works and to relocate and re-arrange T-walls and containerised housing units from one location to another.

A UNAMI statement said: “UNAMI intends to award the result contract for one year, with the option of extension for an additional year at our discretion, subject to satisfactory performance.”

UNAMI will undertake the competitive bidding exercise in the near future.

The successful bidder shall be responsible for providing a 15-20-tonne fork-lift, 20-tonne crane, 30-tonne crane, flat bed, dump truck, front end loader (shovel) and a roller compactor.

They should also be able to provide qualified fork lift, crane and truck operators with sufficient knowledge and experience.

A concerted campaign has begun to rebuild the southern Iraqi city over the past few years. It was nigh decimated by a series of bomb blasts and gun fights following the withdrawal of British troops from the area in autumn, September, 2007.
