Fluor awarded $154 million in Iraqi power restoration projects
Fluor Corporation has been awarded three separate task orders worth $154 million by the US Army Corps of Engineers for electrical power restoration work in Iraq.
The task orders are the first to be placed with Fluor under a contract awarded last month for potential work within the US Central Command area of operations, including Iraq.
The task orders call for Fluor to rehabilitate multiple power generation facilities in Baghdad, reconstruct a power transmission line in northern Iraq and restore a water intake facility at a thermal power station in southern Iraq.
The contract under which the task orders were issued has a potential value of $500 million in its first year, with the potential for four one-year options that have a maximum value of $250 million each.
Since April 2003, Fluor has been awarded more than $600 million in Iraqi reconstruction work under various Department of Defense contracts. The projects have included operations and maintenance services, building renovation, force protection and electrical infrastructure repair. — (menareport.com)
