Canada: Oil Sands Mining Project Fluor Completes Module Fabrication for Oil Sands Project
Fluor Corporation 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.
Irving/USA — The company is performing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction for the utilities scope of the project. The project applied the 3rd Gen Modular Execution 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 (SMFI) joint venture fabrication yard in Canada and three other Canadian yards built the modules. Once at site, the modules are set by the engineering services provider's craft workforce.
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.
