Since 1950, Fluor has helped shape the face of Australia by executing a wide range of projects, from small conceptual studies to world-class, complex undertakings. As growth ramped up after World War II, Fluor was a valued partner on many vital infrastructure projects including the building and maintenance of dams, tunnels, bridges, railways, and harbors.
Australia’s abundant natural resources have always been, and continue to play an important part in the national economy. Since 1956, Fluor has assisted many clients in mining for coal, iron ore, bauxite, copper, gold, nickel, cobalt, zinc, lead, and silver. Many of these projects are in remote locations and require specialised execution approaches to overcome the challenges associated with the project environments.
Beginning in 1960, self sufficiency in the domestic production of energy and chemicals was a goal that Fluor was able to help make a reality through the design, construction, and maintenance of oil refineries, pipelines, power plants, and chemical facilities. New capacity and expansions were realized in butadiene, ethylene, synthetic rubber, polyvinyl chloride, bitumen, styrene, paints, polypropylene, and plastics. In the early 1970’s when oil and gas wells were drilled in the Bass Strait, Fluor became a regular contractor for these projects.
Fluor's reputation has been established by consistently meeting the highest standards in project execution and completing projects with dependability, expertise, safety, and environmental sensitivity. Fluor's flexible approach to project execution allows appropriate, cost-effective solutions, enhancing the value of customers' assets, and increasing their long-term business success.
Today, Fluor's operations in Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane deliver major mining, oil and gas, infrastructure and operations and maintenance projects across Australia and around the world. Fluor has some of the most experienced personnel in the industry and has built key relationships with constructors and suppliers, utilising local expertise and knowledge for our clients' benefit.
