Fluor to begin construction of power plant in Nevada

2 March 2006 - Fluor Corporation announced Wednesday that it will begin construction of a 200 MW, coal-fired power plant in Nevada for Newmont Mining Corporation. Value to Fluor for this work is $400m.

Under terms of the contract, Fluor will perform engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the plant, which will be located in Eureka County, Nev. Employees in Fluor's Greenville, S.C., office began work on this project shortly after receiving a limited notice to proceed from Newmont Mining near the end of 2004.

"We're delighted to begin construction on this project," said Bob Mickey, Fluor's senior vice president of Power. "We look forward to providing low-cost, reliable electricity to Newmont's mining operations, while remaining committed to the environment. The plant is designed to exceed the EPA's new stringent standards for plant emissions."

The project is expected to achieve the commercial operation date, a key event for the project, in 2008. When complete, the plant will use the best emissions control technology currently available.
