Fluor performed EPC services at the plant site in Dunphy, Nevada. The project consisted of a 242 megawatt (gross) coal-fired boiler, steam turbine generator, dry scrubber, baghouse, selective catalytic reduction system, carbon injection systems, cooling tower, and 100-acre evaporation pond.
Fluor’s scope of work included implementing world-class design features such as a leading-edge DCS system and advanced-cycle design steam temperatures. Fluor mitigated challenges by driving a culture of proactive and continuous risk assessment. This approach enabled the team to continually identify and mitigate various risks throughout execution.
Consequently, the project achieved 4.4 million safe work hours. Additionally, the TS project was awarded the prestigious Nevada Safe Partner award by the state of Nevada in 2007.
Fluor achieved substantial completion of the project five weeks ahead of Newmont Mining’s contract deadline. Moreover, the project completed successful performance tests in April, enabling Newmont to declare commercial operation of the plant on May 1, 2008.
