Fluor provided EPC and commissioning services for a 2 x 800MW unit, coal-fired, steam-electric generating station.
Fluor is using the best available control technology to minimize emissions at the new plant, which has among the lowest sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and mercury emissions in the nation and will be 75 percent cleaner than the average U.S. coal plant.
The control technology includes steam generators with selective catalytic reduction, flue gas particulate removal, and wet flue gas desulfurization systems to meet emissions requirements.
Fluor used the company's global execution center in India to support engineering, and a Fluor subsidiary provided construction equipment and consumables to meet the extremely aggressive schedule. Fluor also leveraged its global procurement network to buy quality products such as the chimney, high-alloy pipe, and emissions control systems at competitive prices and with shorter delivery schedules.
Additionally, Fluor worked with state and local government representatives and community and technical colleges throughout Texas to attract, recruit, and hire local talent to meet the construction resource requirements of the project, which was expected to peak at 2,400 staff.
