Fluor set to build power plant for Dominion Virginia Power

Fluor Corp. won full notice to proceed from Dominion Virginia Power to begin construction on the company’s new 1,358 MW, natural gas-fueled power station in Brunswick County, Virginia. This award follows the limited notice to proceed contract that Dominion awarded to Fluor in August 2012. Fluor booked about $800 million into backlog during the third quarter of 2013.

Fluor began providing engineering and procurement services on the plant from its Charlotte, North Carolina office last year while Dominion awaited regulatory approvals to begin construction. The project is expected to staff about 600 craft workers at peak during the construction phase.

On August 2, 2013, Dominion received approval from the Virginia State Corporation Commission to move forward with construction. The new combined cycle, natural gas-fired power station will meet increased customer demand and replace electricity from older coal-fired generating units that are being retired.

The Brunswick County Power Station is expected to begin providing commercial service in the summer of 2016.
