Fluor provided full services in completing the USACE assignment. This included engineering, procurement, construction management, construction, and commissioning services. A change-management program was managed by Fluor in consultation with the USACE and the Iraqi government to handle the many changes and challenges that would arise in the course of the project.
Power generation work was performed simultaneously at three power stations, Qudas Power Station, Hillah Power Station, and Najaf Power Station. Existing power units and distribution control centers were rehabilitated, new power units were installed, high-voltage transmission towers and lines were repaired, and supervisory control and data acquisition [SCADA] systems were installed.
Fluor deployed more than 140 personnel, direct-hired 200 Iraqi nationals, and subcontracted an in-country workforce of over 2,800. Twenty security teams were brought in to monitor and safeguard lives and property connected to the project. Community outreach work was also conducted by Fluor in connection with the project, including educational support work, water-quality improvement, and road enhancement.
