ENSCO, Inc. Awarded $571 Million U.S. Department of Transportation Contract
ENSCO, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been awarded a $571 million USD contract to provide research and development, testing, engineering and training services at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC) in support of the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) goal of establishing the TTC as a center for rail and ground transportation innovation.
As the awardee, ENSCO will operate and maintain the TTC in support of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to develop a vibrant, engaging and modern TTC that fosters innovation, encourages positive change, and creates opportunity. ENSCO will also expand the use of the facility to support other government and commercial entities to achieve the broader mission of transportation safety, security and innovation. The contract term includes a five-year base period and three, five-year option periods for a total of 20 years from award date. Transition of the DOT operations, maintenance and research programs to ENSCO will be completed by October 2022.
ENSCO will be supported by a team of leading surface transportation research, training, technology and facilities management organizations focused on next generation technology supporting transportation infrastructure. This team will be further supported by the Center for Surface Transportation Testing and Academic Research (C-STTAR) consortium of eight universities and academic research centers. C-STTAR was established by ENSCO to provide expertise in research focus areas across all modes of surface transportation, including intermodal transportation, which will support TTC growth initiatives.
“ENSCO looks forward to supporting FRA’s vision for the Transportation Technology Center. We have assembled an incredible team of industry and university research, safety, technology, testing and training entities to serve the needs of FRA, DOT and the surface transportation industry. We are excited to support the many site stakeholders, including the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and its members, to continue the important railroad research occurring at the center today and to expand the capabilities of the site to other modes of transportation with this robust team. ENSCO also looks forward to supporting the local Pueblo, Colo., economy by partnering with local leadership, universities and business, attracting visitors who participate in site activities and recruiting top technical talent to the area.”
