Fluor Power business president Matthew McSorley said: "The addition of this important nuclear asset to Fluor’s portfolio enables us to provide integrated solutions and services to Luminant’s generation system."

Luminant’s only nuclear generation asset, the Comanche Peak facility features two pressurized water reactors with a combined capacity of 2,300MW.

The unit I has been operational since 1990 and unit 2 since 1993. The 40-year licenses of the units expire in 2030 and 2033, respectively.

The power plant can produce electricity required to power about 1.15 million homes during normal operations and 460,000 homes during peak demand.

Since 1984, Fluor has been providing ongoing maintenance and modification services at four of Luminant’s power plants. The company serviced the Comanche Peak plant from 1991 until 2006.
