Fluor Takes On A Giant Cleanup


In Business This Week

FLUOR TAKES ON A GIANT CLEANUP

Fluor, best known for its construction of oil refineries and power plants, announced on Aug. 11 that it has snared the Energy Dept.'s largest single environmental cleanup award ever--worth as much as $4 billion. Fluor, based in Irvine, Calif., will clean up and dismantle a shuttered and leaky nuclear reactor outside of Cincinnati.

The sprawling facility sits on 1,050 contaminated acres. Energy used the site to process uranium for nuclear warheads from 1953 through 1988. The cleanup job will employ at least 2,000 people and take at least five years.EDITED BY DEIDRE A. DEPKE
