SHEMYA ISLAND MISSILE DEFENSE PROJECT

Location: Aleutian Islands, Alaska
Contractor: Fluor
AFT Contract: $2,200,000

Shemya Island US Air Force Missile Defense Base is located at the end of the chain of Aleutian Islands, Alaska. AFT's turnkey contract included refurbishing the fire detection, suppression, and fire pump systems for the power plant. The severe Alaskan winters required exact scheduling and coordination for material delivery. All equipment shipments were from the US by barge in the short summer months. Start-up and construction also had a precise schedule to avoid the severe weather conditions.
