Alstom to provide generators for combined cycle power plant

Sponsored by

Alstom has been awarded a contract by Fluor Corp. to provide three heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) for Dominion Virginia Power's new 1,300 MW Brunswick County Power Station.

The Brunswick facility will be located about 180 miles south of Washington, D.C. near Lawrenceville, Virginia, and will provide enough power to meet the needs of more than 325,000 homes when it comes online in 2016. Fluor Corp. is leading the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning efforts for the project.

These units will be the largest HRSG's supplied by Alstom for the North America market. They incorporate Alstom's Optimized for Cycle and Constructability design, which offers better performance during gas plant cycling and a lower overall cost of construction. Selective catalytic reduction and carbon monoxide catalyst technology embedded in the HRSGs reduce overall emissions from the plant.

HRSGs are the linkage between a combined cycle plant's gas-fired and steam-based power generation capabilities. When a gas turbine's hot exhaust stream passes through the modules of an HRSG, water is converted to steam, which then spins a steam turbine. Each of the Brunswick County HRSG's will be coupled with a MHI501G gas turbine.

Construction of the Brunswick County Power Station is pending approval from the Virginia State Corporation Commission.
