IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation said that it has been awarded two subcontracts by Westinghouse Electric Company to manage the construction workforce at two Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plant projects in Georgia and in South Carolina – the first majority-owned and operated by Georgia Power and the second owned and operated by SCANA/Santee Cooper.

Fluor booked $5 billion in contracts in the fourth quarter of 2015.

As a subcontractor to Westinghouse, the prime engineering, procurement and construction contractor, Fluor will manage the majority of construction labour at Georgia Power’s Plant Vogtle Units 3 & 4 near Waynesboro, Georgia, and at two additional nuclear electric generating units for SCANA/Santee Cooper at the VC Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County, South Carolina.

“We look forward to working with Westinghouse as one team to complete the construction of these two US nuclear mega-projects. These projects are in line with our strategy to expand our construction footprint,” said David Seaton, chairman and CEO, Fluor.

“Fluor is excited to welcome much of the sites’ workforce into our family,” said Chris Tye, president of Fluor’s power business.
