Fluor Corporation was named by Westinghouse Electric Company LLC to manage construction of two Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power reactor projects in Georgia and South Carolina.
The projects are owned and operated by Southern Company in Waynesboro, Ga., and SCANA/Santee Cooper in Fairfield County, S.C.
“We are very pleased with the vote of confidence that Westinghouse, and the nuclear facility owners, have placed in our company to manage the construction of these two U.S. nuclear mega-projects,” David Seaton, Fluor chairman and CEO, said in a release.
Fluor will assess the two projects, engaging the workforce and planning a transition of duties and responsibilities required to develop appropriate plans to manage plant construction. Fluor and Westinghouse have further agreed that Fluor’s scope will complete project construction at these facilities on a cost reimbursable basis, without liability for pre-existing conditions associated with prior construction.
