Fluor, with its extensive experience and knowledge, provided in-house engineering for both the polysilicon plant and the TCS plant, working with the Chinese design institutes to carry out design of utilities, infrastructure, and offsites (U&I&O), and oversaw construction by a local workforce to deliver this project to LDK on schedule.
Fluor also acted as integrator of all TKHP activities to assure that engineering packages and equipment were delivered to meet the schedule.
The company used a multi-office execution approach to the LDK project with Fluor engineering teams in Greenville, South Carolina; Manila, the Philippines; and Shanghai, PRC. The company also worked closely with two Chinese design institutes in Chengdu for detailed design of U&I&O and drawing reviews. Procurement was handled in Fluor's Shanghai office.
The project achieved a significant safety milestone in mid-September 2008 when more than 6 million craft hours were worked without a single lost-time incident (DART-L). This major milestone is a result of Fluor's Zero Incidents℠ program, implemented to educate employees and raise awareness of safe work habits.
Fluor continues to provide debottlenecking services at the plant and is implementing new technologies to increase the production for this state-of-the-art facility.
