Fluor Corporation (FLR) announced that all 358 modules have been fabricated and shipped to the site for its portion of the Fort Hills Energy L.P. oil sands mining project in the Athabasca region of Alberta, Canada. Fluor is performing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction for the utilities scope of the project.

The project applied Fluor’s innovative 3rd Gen Modular ExecutionSM approach, which optimizes process block layouts and provides the capability to fully modularize large-scale industrial facilities. Benefits include improved safety, lower costs, increased productivity and schedule predictability through the transfer of a significant amount of traditional site work to fabrication yards.

Fluor’s Supreme Modular Fabrication Inc. (SMFI) joint venture fabrication yard in Canada and three other Canadian yards built the modules. Once at site, the modules are set by Fluor’s craft workforce. The site has achieved more than 2.8 million hours without a lost-time incident.

“Achieving this milestone is a testament to the collaboration and commitment of our craft professionals at the SMFI fabrication yard, other module yards and at the project site,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business. “Leveraging our full range of integrated solutions, including our craft workforce, fabrication yards, global sourcing capabilities and 3rd Gen Modular Execution approach, we have reduced the project’s capital cost from initial estimates while maintaining schedule.”

The Fort Hills Project, an open-pit truck and shovel mine, is owned by Fort Hills Energy LP, a partnership between Suncor Energy, Total E&P Canada Ltd. and Teck Resources Limited.
