Fluor Wins Carbon-free Power Project

Fluor has been awarded a reimbursable services contract for North America’s first Small Modular Nuclear Reactor Project by Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS).

Fluor Corporation announced that Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) awarded the company a cost-reimbursable development agreement to provide estimating, development, design and engineering services for its Carbon-Free Power Project.

Fluor’s development agreement with UAMPS for its Carbon-Free Power Project is a monumental milestone toward providing clean load following, base load energy for UAMPS members using NuScale Power’s unique small modular reactor design,” said Alan Boeckmann, Executive Chairman of Fluor. “Fluor has been a preeminent player in the nuclear industry for 70 years and is well-positioned to assist UAMPS and the DOE to accomplish their objectives to provide carbon-free energy for its customers and to deploy a commercially viable small modular reactor with safety, security and performance characteristics that exceed the operational capabilities of current certified designs.”

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently provided UAMPS a multi-year cost-share award for up to $1.355 billion in funding, subject to future year appropriations, to aid in the development of the first small modular nuclear reactor project in the U.S. The DOE funding is intended to mitigate licensing and financial risk and to accelerate commercial deployment schedules in order to meet critical U.S. energy, environment and economic goals.

Fluor has been serving the nuclear industry for more than 70 years including the design and construction support for more than 25 nuclear plants, plus nearly 100 million hours of nuclear operations and maintenance work.
