US-based engineering and construction company Fluor has been awarded a new contract by Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for the procurement and construction of redevelopment work at Darlington Nuclear Generating Station in Canada.
Fluor will book the undisclosed value of the deal in Q4 2017.
Since the early 1990s, OPG’s Darlington Nuclear Generating Station has generated approximately 20% of Ontario’s total energy requirement, which represents more than two million homes each day.
The nuclear power project is currently undergoing a mid-life refurbishment in order to continue providing reliable service to the region.
Fluor Power business president Simon Nottingham said: “The Darlington refurbishment programme represents a significant investment in Ontario’s economy and environment.
“As a company with a long and diverse history in Canada, Fluor is honoured to support OPG in extending the life of this important asset.”
Under the deal, Fluor will be responsible for carrying out the replacement of emergency power generators for Units 1 and 2 of the nuclear station.
The replacements will be part of site safety and infrastructure projects currently being carried out to revamp the power station.
New emergency power generators will be installed to replace the existing units that are approaching the end of their design life.
Fluor is a global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, and maintenance company that designs, develops, and maintains capital-efficient facilities for its clients on six continents.
