The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a second task order to Fluor Corp. to assist with the restoration and rebuilding of transmission and distribution lines in Puerto Rico.
The three-month single award task order is funded at $495 million with a ceiling of $831 million and is the second awarded to Fluor for power restoration work on the island, which was heavily damaged by Hurricane Maria, according to a Dec. 6 news release.
A previous task order for $240 million was awarded on Oct. 16, with an additional $261 million added to the original task order on Dec. 4.
"Both task orders represent work assigned to the Corps under a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mission. They were both competitively bid and awarded to Fluor under a Basic Ordering Agreement contract," Fluor said in the release.
