Fluor Corp. said this week that Westinghouse Electric Co. has contracted it to manage the construction workforce at two nuclear plant projects with AP1000 nuclear reactors in Georgia and South Carolina in deals worth approximately $5 billion altogether.

The construction projects consist of oversight on the Vogtle Nuclear Plant expansion near Waynesboro, Georgia, as well as the addition of two nuclear reactors at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County, South Carolina. Through this agreement, Fluor is assisting Westinghouse with transition of services, as well as the responsibilities and  makeup of field staff.

The Vogtle expansion also includes two nuclear reactors and is primarily owned by Georgia Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, and the V.C. Summer Facility is primarily owned and operated by SCANA/Santee Cooper.

“We look forward to working with Westinghouse as one team to complete the construction of these two U.S. nuclear mega-projects,” David Seaton, Fluor’s chairman and CEO, said. “These projects re-confirm our commitment to the nuclear power industry and are in line with our strategy to expand our construction footprint. We share the vision with Westinghouse, Georgia Power and SCANA/Santee Cooper that nuclear power matters to the future of clean energy.”
