Fluor, GEH to provide project development services to Dominion Virginia Power’s nuclear unit

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation, in a consortium with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH), has been selected by Dominion Virginia Power to provide project development services for its proposed 1,470-megawatt nuclear unit at its North Anna Power Station in Louisa County, Virginia, US. Once Dominion Virginia Power receives federal permission to proceed, which is expected in 2015, and decides whether to build the unit, Fluor will perform the construction of the facility.

Project development activities are expected to continue throughout 2013 and beyond in preparation for release of a full engineering, procurement and construction contract (EPC) for an Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (ESBWR) nuclear power plant. Fluor’s Greenville, operations centre will lead the project development efforts.
