Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) has been awarded an extension of its operations and maintenance (O&M) contract for work at Pacific Gas and Electric Company's (PG&E) Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant Units 1 & 2 in Avila Beach, California. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the first quarter of 2013.
At Diablo Canyon, which produces 18,000 gigawatt-hours annually, Fluor will continue to provide ongoing maintenance, modification and outage services for PG&E's two nuclear generating units. The work encompasses mechanical, electrical and civil tasks during non-outage and outage periods. Fluor was awarded the initial O&M contract in May 2010.
“Fluor is pleased to extend our operations and maintenance services for PG&E,” said Matt McSorley, senior vice president and head of Fluor’s Power business. “Diablo Canyon features an exemplary safety record while providing clean, reliable energy to millions of Californians. Fluor looks forward to continuing that tradition of safety excellence while maintaining this significant facility.”
The Diablo Canyon Power Plant, which has operated safely since 1985, features two Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) units to produce energy for more than 3 million residents of Northern and Central California.
Based in San Francisco, PG&E is one of the largest combination natural gas and electric utilities in the United States.
