V.C. Summer Nuclear Power Station - Unit 1

Fluor performed the construction of this 900-megawatt pressurized water reactor nuclear power plant located near Columbia, South Carolina. The plant uses a Westinghouse nuclear steam supply system and a General Electric turbine generator.

Fluor's responsibilities included project management and direct hiring, training, and supervision of crafts performing the civil and piping phase of the project, as well as administration of the electrical, HVAC, and turbine erection contractors. Fluor also provided project cost control, planning and scheduling, quality assurance and site quality control and inspection for the ASME piping and pipe hanger installation, and field and technical and engineering support for the project. To support construction, Fluor implemented project training programs and a site safety program. At construction peak, 2,700 craft and 400 management personnel were employed on the project.

In August 1982, turnover of completed facilities and systems to the Client's operating staff was completed and fuel loading was performed. The $1.3 billion plant was placed into commercial operation in October 1983.

At the project's completion, Fluor was contracted by the facility's operating department to provide supplemental maintenance and modification services. Fluor provided maintenance services with a site-based staff.

In 2015, Fluor was named by Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC (Westinghouse), to manage construction of two new Westinghouse AP1000® nuclear reactor units at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Generating Station. Fluor will be providing project execution and direction, accountability for and management of professional staff and craft personnel, and a focus on safety, quality, and project delivery certainty.
