* First time MoD has outsourced German facilities contract

* Deal worth 200 million euros over five years

(Adds detail)

LONDON, Feb 11 (Reuters) - British defence services group Babcock International (BAB.L) said it had been awarded a contract worth 200 million euros ($272 million) to provide facilities management at British forces bases across Germany.

This is the first time Defence Estates, the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) property arm, has outsourced a major facilities management contract in Germany to a private sector partner.

Babcock will maintain buildings and grounds at 12 sites occupied by British forces, predominantly in the German states of Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia.

“Babcock has worked closely with Defence Estates to develop a cost-effective and flexible solution, capable of evolving in response to the significant changes planned to the MoD footprint as service personnel return to the UK,” the company said in a statement on Friday.
