Fluor Corporation announced Monday that it had been awarded a contract of an undisclosed value that includes replacing the emergency power generators for Units 1 and 2 at the Ontario Power Generation's Darlington Nuclear Generating Station in Ontario, Canada.
The contract covers “procurement and construction [for] refurbishment work at OPG's Darlington” power plant. The company will book the undisclosed value of the deal in the fourth quarter of 2017, the company said.
The existing emergency power generators at the plant are approaching the end of their design life. Overall, the refurbishment program at the plant “represents a significant investment in Ontario's economy and environment,” noted the president of Fluor's Power business Simon Nottingham.
In turn, the Darlington power plant is a significant contributor to the region's power supply, producing approximately 20 percent of Ontario's electricity since the early 1990s. The refurbishment project is considered a “mid-life” program, Fluor said in a statement.
