Fluor Corporation announced that it was 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 labor 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 V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County, South Carolina.
Fluor is supporting Westinghouse to quickly transition construction responsibilities, as well as the craft labor and a significant portion of the existing field staff workforce, from the previous contractor.
