Fluor Corp.’s crews supporting the mission in Puerto Rico of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have helped to restore power to more than 232,000 customers across the island since arriving in October.

To show appreciation for the communities in which they are living and working, Fluor employees and subcontracted crews have held two events — in the municipalities of Morovis and Hatillo — serving food, and providing milk, juice and water to more than 800 residents, according to a news release.

“Our crews continue to show tremendous progress in the field,” said Matt Hunt, Fluor’s executive program director, Puerto Rico Power Restoration Project, in the release. “This mission is very close to our hearts, and we thank the Puerto Rican people for their patience and kind gestures as we work in neighborhoods. We want communities to know that we are committed to restoring power and we will keep working hard until our job is complete.”

Fluor provides design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to Puerto Rican clients in a broad range of high employment industries including power, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, aerospace, manufacturing and food and beverage. This expertise will enable ongoing efforts to help sustain economic recovery on the island, the release said.

Fluor Corp. is based in Irving, Texas and has offices in Greenville.
