Supports Clients during Startup of Capital Projects

Our Clients often engage Fluor to Support Startup and Commissioning Activities.

Startup success requires a team approach with active planning and participation by all stakeholders. Completion of a well-designed, safe and best-in-class facility delivered on time requires the early development of a commissioning and start-up plan and schedule based on a systems approach and establishment of system turnover dates to support it.

In support of startup planning, each process unit is divided into systems and sub-systems to facilitate their completion, pre-commissioning and commissioning. This approach requires close coordination among the Client, engineering, process licensors (if applicable), suppliers, construction and the start-up team for an orderly turnover, commissioning and start-up while minimizing the impact to ongoing operations.

Fluor develops a detailed Project Commissioning Manual early in the engineering phase that outlines the Client’s and Fluor’s approach and methodology to implementing seamless commissioning and turnover.

From real-time visualization software and weld tracking tools, to work packaging programs and Fluor Site ConnectSM, enabling automation of work flows associated with data or information via mobile devices to support construction work processes in the field.

Craft Certification, Licenses and Permits
Craft Certification – Fluor’s Craft Certification program provides a means of identifying qualified journey-level craft workers, foremen and general foremen. The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) assessments are used to evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft.

NCCER’s performance verification and test instruments are designed as tools to assess the skill level of a journey-level worker. Individuals who successfully complete the NCCER written certification assessment and the performance verification will receive the Certified Plus certification through the National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP).

Licenses and Permits – Fluor’s provides the necessary licenses to execute projects in diverse locations. Each project and location may have different permitting requirements and Fluor can assist Clients to obtain necessary permits in the specific country in which the project is delivered.

Industrial Relations
Fluor’s Industrial Relations team evaluates and mitigates domestic and international labor or employment issues to promote and maintain labor harmony. Through regional analysis, the group determines various labor posture approaches and makes sure working conditions comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those applying to craft compensation, employee relations, collective bargaining agreements and community relations.

Modularization
For more than 40 years, Fluor has been an industry leader in the use of modular construction. Modular execution begins during a project’s conceptual design phase as a coordinated effort that encompasses all EPC project functions. Fluor provides modular construction and construction management services from design, through module assembly and transportation, to erection and final turnover. Following the conceptual design and detailed design phases, Fluor’s modular teams manage and coordinate the various suppliers, subcontractors and assembly yards needed to construct and test the modules. Fluor arranges for loading, transport and unloading of the assembled modules including barge, ship, rail or over-the-road transport.

Rigging Services
Fluor retains highly experienced rigging specialists who assist projects with rigging plans, studies, detailed design of rigging attachments, consultation, technical subcontract selection and management. Rigging plans and analysis for a project usually result in significant savings through efficiencies, construction equipment savings and avoidance of costly problems and accidents.

Welding Certification and Services
All welders performing ASME/NBIC code work are required to be qualified and certified in accordance with the original code of construction and ASME Section IX. Welder qualification test records are available at the site of the welding. The project quality representative assures only qualified welders perform code work. The quality representative also assures all welders performing code work have reviewed the applicable weld procedure specifications (WPSs).

The test WPS used for the qualification of welders is selected based on the anticipated WPSs to be used in production, including welding processes, joint thicknesses and diameters to be welded. To requalify, due to expired Fluor certification(s), testing may be reduced, provided a record of the previous qualification is available.

We Implement Our World-Class HSE Program on Every Project at Fluor.

Fluor is a global construction leader that has successfully executed more than 10,000 construction projects. Fluor typically delivers both construction management and self-perform services at an average of 100 sites annually.

In addition to construction services, Fluor implements a comprehensive Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) program on every project it executes. Fluor’s safety program is equally as important a responsibility as any other management concern, including cost, scheduling, quality control and productivity. In fact, safety is a core value at Fluor.

Safety Excellence

Fluor believes that all construction tasks can be safely executed and that all accidents are preventable.

Our project approach and documented procedures fully integrate safety into every aspect of the project and maintain it as the foremost concern for the entire project team. Successful execution of complex projects can be achieved only with a healthy and safe workforce of employees, subcontractors and client personnel.

Fluor’s HSE policy includes the following requirements:

  • Activities are executed to prevent impact to the environment or, when prevention is not possible, minimized to an acceptable level.
  • Each project has an assigned health and safety representative responsible for all aspects of the aforementioned planrogram.
  • Employees are responsible for HSE in the tasks assigned to them – (simply put, working safely is a condition of employment). Fluor pursues the goal of no harm to project employees, visitors and neighboring communities.
  • Fluor controls, audits, monitors, appraises and verifies all HSE performance, using metrics and incentives approved by the Client.
  • Fluor develops and implements a comprehensive, project-specific HSE planrogram, in conformity with legal requirements, Fluor’s safety standards and Client procedures. The HSE program is applied throughout the life of the project and drives continuous performance improvement. Fluor’s health and safety systems and procedures confirm a consistent approach to the program.
  • Fluor establishes criteria to mitigate or strictly limit worker exposure to risky work methods, harmful materials, high -noise levels and heat or cold exposure. The working conditions promote the health and safety of all employees, Clients and third parties.
  • Fluor promotes an HSE culture among all personnel employed on the project, including multilingual training where appropriate.
  • Fluor provides individual and organizational incentives in the form of reward and recognition for excellent safety performance.
  • Fluor’s subcontractors implement an approved project-specific HSE plan, as directed by their contracts.
  • HSE hazards are identified, assessed, understood and addressed before execution of engineering, procurement and construction activities.

Safety Performance Excellence
Fluor is a global leader in HSE performance. Our safety culture begins in engineering design and continues throughout the life cycle of the project. Fluor continues to reinforce its position as one of the world’s safest contractors through outstanding self-perform and subcontractor performance.

In addition to the most important result – protecting lives – our safety record benefits our Clients by:

  • Improving employee productivity and morale
  • Minimizing needless liability claims
