Engineering Excellence Award Fluor Wins National Engineering Excellence Award
Fluor has been awarded the 2010 National Prize of Industrial Engineering by the Spanish National Society of Professional Industrial Engineers.
Madrid/Spain, Irving/Texas – The award in the "Engineering Project" category was given to Fluor for the company's contribution to the C-10 expansion project of Spanish Repsol Petróleo's refinery in Cartagena (Murcia), Spain. The award was presented by Spain's Prince Felipe at a ceremony in Madrid, Spain, on May 30th.
"Fluor is honored to receive this prestigious award by the Spanish National Society of Professional Industrial Engineers," said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group. "This tremendous effort by our engineers and project team in Madrid and Asturias is one example of our global engineering and project expertise in the oil and gas sector."
Fluor served as the program management contractor on the project, which doubled the capacity of a heavy oil conversion refinery, focusing on managing interfaces with several licensors and engineering and procurement contractors. The company also was responsible for the front-end engineering and design as well as the engineering, procurement and construction management for the utilities and offsite facilities and assisting Repsol in the preparation of the project sanction estimate at Cartagena. Fluor's "Zero Incidents" safety program was also implemented on the project. Construction works are still ongoing and are scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter of the year. Fluor´s scope is roughly one fourth of Repsol's overall $3 billion investment.
