IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation (FLR) said that it is working under its contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in support of a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mission to help repair and restore the power grid in Puerto Rico, has completed work on two 115kv transmission lines between substations in Sabana Llana and Canovanas in Puerto Rico.

Transmission lines move large amounts of electricity over long distances. Fluor has previously completed work on multiple distribution lines, which connect to the transmission system and are part of the last stage in getting power to homes and businesses.

The completion allows the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to re-energize lines in a major urban center that will carry electricity to large neighborhoods, churches, pharmacies, a retirement home and The Outlet Mall 66 in Canovanas.

Fluor has more than 1,800 people on the island dedicated to the restoration of power.

“We have a long history in Puerto Rico and the proven ability to respond to urgent needs. As a result, we have significant numbers of crews and equipment in place. Working at the direction of the Corps and in coordination with PREPA, we are proud to be delivering results to the people of Puerto Rico,” said Matt Hunt, Fluor’s executive program director, Puerto Rico Power Restoration Project.
