Fluor completes 1,358-MW project for Dominion in Virginia

Fluor Corp. (NYSE: FLR) announced May 23 that it has achieved substantial completion for Dominion Virginia Power’s Brunswick County Power Station in Virginia.

Fluor provided engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the 1,358-MW, natural gas-fueled station in Brunswick County, Virginia. Fluor completed the project with a construction staff totaling more than 1,500 workers during the peak of construction activity.

The completed power station will produce enough electricity to power 325,000 homes and began producing electricity for its customers in April. Dominion Virginia Power is a unit of Dominion Resources (NYSE: D).

“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.”

Fluor noted that it is also scheduled to begin construction on Dominion’s new Greensville County Power Station later this year, a 1,600-MW combined-cycle, natural gas-fired station in Greensville County, located seven miles from the Brunswick County Power Station.

Fluor is a global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance company that designs, builds and maintains capital-efficient facilities for its clients on six continents.
