Fluor Corp. of Irving has secured a construction contract from American Electric Power to provide environmental retrofit services at the utility company’s Northeastern power station in Oologah, Okla.
Fluor booked the contract for an undisclosed value in the third quarter of 2014.
The retrofit includes adding activated carbon and dry sorbent injection systems to part of the plant to control mecury, sulfur dioxide and acid gas emissions emissions.
“We look forward to working with AEP on this power project,” said Matt McSorley, president of Fluor’s Power business, in a news release.
Fluor will oversee demolition, installation and erection of the above-ground mechanical and structural systems and components, and the work will be performed by Fluor’s direct-hire construction staff. The company also will provide other associated engineering and procurement services.
American Electric Power, based in Columbus, Ohio, serves more than 5 million customers in 11 states.
