Irving, Texas—Fluor Corp. of Irving, Texas announced the completion of the Brunswick County Power Station for Dominion Virginia Power. The project is a combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power station in Brunswick County, Virginia, and the investment exceeded $1 billion.
Fluor provided engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the 1,358-megawatt power station. The project was completed with a construction staff totaling more than 1,500 workers during the peak of construction activity.
The facility began producing electricity for its customers in April and will produce enough electricity to power 325,000 homes. New power output from the Brunswick County facility will replace electricity generated by existing coal units at two stations in eastern Virginia, which will be retired.
“The completion of the Brunswick County facility is a prime example of Fluor’s service excellence we provide to our clients,” said Chris Tye, president of Fluor’s Power business. “We are especially proud of the project team that demonstrated our ability to achieve quality completion ahead of schedule. Building upon our long and proven track record with Dominion, Fluor again delivered an asset that supports their pursuit to provide customers with clean and reliable energy.”
Fluor has designed, procured, constructed and commissioned more than 34,000 megawatts of gas-fired facilities during the past 10 years. Later this year, the company will begin construction on Dominion’s new Greensville County Power Station, a 1,600-megawatt combined-cycle, natural-fired power station in Greensville County, located seven miles from Brunswick County Power Station.
