A unit of Kuwaiti logistics company Agility has won a three-year contract with an estimated revenue of $190 million to supply an international mission in Sudan’s Darfur region, a statement on Kuwait’s stock exchange said on Sunday.

Under the contract, Agility’s Gulf Catering Company for General Trade will provide bottled water and other supplies to the joint United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID), the filing on Kuwait’s bourse said.

The contract can be extended by up to two years, it said.

Last month the Kuwaiti firm announced fourth quarter profits of 9.65 million Kuwaiti dinars, more than double the previous year’s figures.
