Engineering, procurement and construction firm Bechtel Corporation earned $30.9 billion in revenue during 2009, booked new work worth $20.3 billion and had a project revenue backlog of $82.1 billion, the company announced. Numbers were off from 2008, a record-breaking year during which the company earned $31.4 billion, booked $35 billion and had backlog revenue of $86.5 billion.
During 2009, Bechtel was involved in a range of global projects across multiple industries and also managed defense and energy work for the U.S. government.
In the oil, gas and chemical sectors, for example, Bechtel worked on refinery expansions and an LNG receiving terminal in the United States; an LNG processing plant in Angola; and a large refinery complex and offshore gas development in India. Bechtel also worked on railway projects in the United States and the UK; roads in Albania and Romania; and an airport in Qatar. Metals and mining projects included alumina refineries and coal loading operations in Australia and copper mining-related projects in Chile.
These types of projects typically call for the transportation of large amounts of heavy lift, project and breakbulk cargo.
