IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation said it was awarded a 5-year contract by Luminant to provide engineering, maintenance and modifications, and facility services for its Comanche Peak nuclear power plant. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the second quarter.

“The addition of this important nuclear asset to Fluor’s portfolio enables us to provide integrated solutions and services to Luminant’s generation system,” said Matthew McSorley, president, Fluor’s power business.

Fluor began providing ongoing maintenance and modification services at four of Luminant’s power plants in 1984 and has since grown the relationship to support all of the company’s fossil power generation units. Fluor previously serviced the Comanche Peak plant from 1991 until 2006. The nuclear power plant is located in Somervell county, Texas, in close proximity to Fluor’s regional power services office.

“This significant award solidifies our footprint in the nuclear services industry,” said Jim Breland, vice president of Fluor’s power maintenance division.

Comanche Peak is Luminant’s sole nuclear generation asset. The plant operates two units which, combined, produce 2,300-megawatt of power - enough energy to power about 1.15 million homes during normal operations and 460,000 homes during periods of peak demand.
