Fluor expands power maintenance services for Luminant
Fluor will supply supervision and craft personnel to support ongoing base crew maintenance as well as major outage and project work, construction services and plant modifications
Irving, Texas, January 14, 2011 — Fluor Corp. won a multi-year contract extension to provide maintenance services for Luminant, a unit of Energy Future Holdings Corp., including all of its fossil fuel power generation plant sites located throughout Texas. The undisclosed contract value was booked in the company’s fourth quarter.
Fluor will supply supervision and craft personnel to support ongoing base crew maintenance as well as major outage and project work, construction services and plant modifications.
Fluor began providing ongoing maintenance services at four of Luminant’s power sites in 1984 and has since grown the relationship to cover all of the company’s fossil power generating sites and equipment repair center. The new contract runs through 2015.
During outages on their coal units, Fluor craft manpower usually peaks between 1,000 to 1,500 workers. Fluor’s equipment, tool and fleet management unit, AMECO, is also engaged with all of Luminant’s power plant sites providing complete craft support services. Luminant is one of AMECO’s longest ongoing clients for which it provides services.
Luminant is a competitive power generation business including mining, wholesale marketing and trading, and development operations. With a total of more than 15,400 MW of generation capacity in Texas, 2,300 MW are fueled by nuclear power and 8,000 MW fueled by coal.
