Fluor Appoint AMEC as Prime Subcontractor for Iraq Restoration
Fluor has appointed AMEC following the award of work worth US$154 million to Fluor Corporation, on which AMEC will act as prime subcontractor. The work, which involves restoration of damaged power generation, transmission and distribution systems, positions AMEC well for future restoration contracts.
Fluor secured the work through its contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), which will involve task orders worth up to US$1.5 billion to Fluor over the next five years, to provide services to the US Central Command area of operations, which includes Iraq.
Fluor and AMEC will begin work immediately on this power contract. The two companies also confirmed that, through their Fluor/AMEC joint venture, they are bidding for other contracts to be awarded by the Coalition Provisional Authority related to power generation and transmission, water treatment, transportation and other public works in Iraq.
Fluor has a UK office in Camberley with AMEC being based in Aberdeen and London.
