Fluor bags Dominion Virginia Power’s EPC contract

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation is awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by Dominion Virginia Power to build its new Brunswick County Power Station, a combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power station in Brunswick County, Va. The project investment will exceed $1 billion.

The new, approximately 1,300-megawatt Brunswick County Power Station is expected to be completed by May 2016 and will produce enough electricity to power more than 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 that will be retired. Fluor will design the plant at its engineering office in Charlotte, NC. The Brunswick County Power Station will be located on a 205-acre site on US Route 58 East of Lawrenceville, Va.

“Fluor is excited that we’ve earned the opportunity to build upon our track record with Dominion Virginia Power to provide clean, reliable, low-cost energy to its Virginia customers,” said Dave Dunning, President, Power Group, Fluor.
