:: Fluor Awarded Series of Contracts by Ma'aden-Alcoa Joint Venture

Fluor Corporation has announced that the company won a series of contracts from the joint venture comprising Saudi Arabian Mining Company, also known as Ma'aden, and Alcoa, to provide program management consultancy (PMC) and engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for a number of projects related to the development of the integrated Ras Az'Zawr aluminum complex. The estimated $10.8 billion super-project will include a bauxite mine, alumina refinery, aluminum smelter and rolling mill. In the second quarter of 2010, Fluor expects to book approximately $3 billion covering four separate scopes of work for the Ras Az'Zawr complex.

Fluor's scopes of work will include the following:

  • Provide overall PMC services for the development of the entire Ras Az'Zawr aluminum complex;
  • Provide EPCM services, in a 50:50 joint venture with Australia's WorleyParsons, for the mine and alumina refinery with an expected delivery date of fourth quarter of 2013;
  • Provide stand-alone EPCM services for the site's rolling mill also with an expected delivery date of fourth quarter of 2013; and
  • Provide stand-alone EPCM services for Ras Az'Zawr site's integrated infrastructure.

"The mining & metals sector continues to be a bright spot for Fluor and the commencement of this significant project in a key region of the world is another sign of the strengthening global economic recovery," said David Seaton, Fluor Corporation's chief operating officer.
