Plant Wansley Electric Generating Station

As the original constructor of the Wansley Station, Fluor originally provided construction and construction management services for this two-unit 1,760 MW, coal-fired facility located near Atlanta, Georgia. The $500 million project included construction of extensive coal storage and handling facilities. The project also included construction of cooling and demineralizing water and ash handing systems.

Fluor also provided ongoing supplemental maintenance and construction labor and supervision.



Client's Challenge

​Continuity of Fluor as the original constructor provided ongoing low cost and construction labor and supervision.


Fluor's Solution

Fluor provided mechanical boiler and turbine inspections and repairs, along with performing repairs and replacements on air preheaters, fans, pumps and other plant equipment during outages. Between outages, Fluor was responsible for coal handling system maintenance and other miscellaneous maintenance and capital projects. Capital work performed included low NOx overfired air ductwork and burner modifications, precipitator SO3 injection system, feedwater heater replacements, boiler tube/element replacements and air preheater basket replacements.

Fluor provided an average of 22 base crew staff personnel between outages and 300 to 380 total personnel during outages under an open-shop labor posture totaling more than 220,000 craft manhours. This work evolved from the original construction and construction management of the plant.
