Company Information/Government Contracts


Schrobenhausen (euro adhoc) - On September 21, 2011 the Construction segment of
BAUER AG was awarded the contract to remediate the Center Hill Dam in Tennessee,
USA. The contract was placed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with local
subsidiary BAUER Foundation Corp. following an extensive tender process. The
specialist foundation engineering works involve installing approximately 29,000
square metres of underground cut-off wall and pressure grouting on the dam
itself.

"This contract award demonstrates the strength of our company in dam
remediation," states Professor Thomas Bauer, Chairman of the Management Board
of BAUER AG.

The BAUER Group, a world technology leader in diaphragm wall construction, has
thus added further to its portfolio of major projects. The contract has a total
value of USD 106 million, and the project is scheduled to take around two years
to complete. The Construction segment has previously demonstrated its expertise
in the field by its remediation of the dyke on Lake Okeechobee in Florida.
