Fluor’s Nuclear Project Experience
Fluor provides Design/Build, operation, maintenance and environmental remediation services to the nuclear industry. A brief overview includes:
- Beginning in 1946, Fluor designed and/or constructed a number of facilities in support of the Department of Energy (DOE)/Atomic Energy Commission weapons complex, including the Portsmouth Gas Centrifuge Enrichment Plant, Los Alamos TA-55 Plutonium Facility, Aldermaston A90 Production Facility (UK), American Centrifuge Plant, facility modifications at the Hanford and Fernald Process Facilities and multiple locations in Idaho.
- Through the acquisition of Pioneer in 1974, Fluor entered the commercial nuclear Architect/Engineering and Construction Management businesses. Fluor designed Prairie Island 1/2, constructed Kewaunee and completed the design for plant modifications for 15 plants at two DOE sites.
- Between 1970 and 1988, Fluor self-performed construction for a number of nuclear power plants, including J.M. Farley 1/2, V.C. Summer, Shearon Harris, Fermi 2, Callaway, Wolf Creek and the Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Plant.
- Between 1983 and 1993, Fluor deployed a large staff of experienced nuclear professionals to support the completion of 10 units at five plant sites. The sites included Vogtle (2 units), South Texas (2 units), Braidwood (2 units), Byron (2 units) and Comanche Peak (2 units).
- Beginning in 1992, Fluor entered the nuclear decommissioning and environmental cleanup market, performing work at Fernald, Hanford, Savannah River, Paducah and Portsmouth in the U.S., and at Magnox and Sellafield in the UK.
- In 2015, Fluor was awarded by Westinghouse to manage construction at V.C. Summer Nuclear Generating Station in Jenkinsville, South Carolina and Plant Vogtle Electric Generating Plant’s Units 3 and 4 in Waynesboro, Georgia.
- Fluor actively supports the DOE sites at Hanford, Idaho Falls, Paducah, Portsmouth, Savannah River, and the U.S. DOE Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Fluor adds to its operating plant support resume of more than 50 U.S. plants at 29 separate locations, performing more than 95 million work hours to date.
Leveraging Fluor’s Advanced Technology Platform
NuScale utilizes some of the most advanced integrated platforms and design software in the industry, including Fluor’s NEXTGENERATION® Project Execution Solutions and the Intergraph SmartPlant® suite of tools.
Fluor’s NEXTGENERATION Project Execution Solutions are a set of highly integrated processes across all phases of a large-scale EPFC project. This project execution solution is enabled by a solid, data-centric foundation that enables multi-office and multiparty execution and rule based automation. At its core is the Intergraph SmartPlant suite of tools.
SmartPlant tools are changing the way plants are designed and engineered. This innovative technology surpasses traditional plant modeling limitations to offer an enhanced and optimized design. As a result, we’re able to execute more complex projects and realize greater productivity and value for our clients.
Working with Fluor, we’re building a brighter future, one that’s supported by a smarter, cleaner, and safer technology.
