CB&I plant in Louisiana given bigger fabrication role in two plant projects


CB&I said on Friday that its Lake Charles fabrication facility has been given an expanded role in fabricating structural and mechanical modules and other components for the AP1000 nuclear power plant projects in Georgia and South Carolina.

"This new development demonstrates the confidence the licensees and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have in our highly skilled work force, nuclear safety culture and operations in Lake Charles," Luke Scorsone, president of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group, said.

On a previous earnings call, CB&I said the work at Lake Charles was set to be mostly finished by the end of last month, but with the additional modules and other key components, the nuclear work at the facility now will continue into next year.

CB&I and its consortium partner, Westinghouse, are building two AP1000 nuclear power units at the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant near Waynesville, Georgia, and two units at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station near Jenkinsville, South Carolina. These are the first new nuclear power units being built in the U.S. in more than 30 years.

"CB&I has worked hard to create a successful, first-of-kind modular fabrication and assembly facility, and we remain committed to successfully completing the AP1000 projects," Scorsone said.

CB&I is the most complete energy infrastructure-focused company in the world and a major provider of government services.
