Fluor to revamp certain Georgia and Alabama fossil fuel plants

Published by
World Coal,

Fluor Corp. has been awarded a five year maintenance alliance contract with a Southern Company subsidiary for its North Georgia and Alabama Coastal power generation facilities in the US. These six fossil-fuel power plants generate approximately 10 000 MW across the southeast.

Fluor’s contract scope will include maintenance, modification and asset integrity services. The company booked the undisclosed contract value in the second quarter.

“This new contract will allow Fluor to provide Southern Company with an integrated solutions approach, including Stork and its comprehensive suite of specialty services,” said Jim Breland, Vice President of Fluor’s Power Services business. “We look forward to delivering safe and exceptional performance for these projects.”

Fluor is currently managing the construction workforce at Southern Company’s largest utility, Georgia Power, which is constructing two new nuclear power units at Plant Vogtle 3 & 4 near Waynesboro, Ga., as a subcontractor to Westinghouse. In 2012, Fluor completed the construction of two combined cycle units for Georgia Power outside of Atlanta as well as the construction of fluegas desulfurisation and selective catalytic reduction modifications for two coal-fired units north of Macon, Georgia.
