Fluor Wins Dominion Brunswick Contract
Dominion Virginia Power has awarded Fluor a US$1 billion engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract to build its new Brunswick County Power Station, a combined-cycle, natural gas-fired plant.
The 1,300-megawatt facility will be located on a 205-acre site on U.S. Route 58 east of Lawrenceville, Va. Dominion expects to receive its final permits and approvals in 2013, Fluor said in a statement. The station is to be completed by May 2016.
Fluor will design the plant at its engineering office in Charlotte, N.C. The Brunswick County plant’s power will replace electricity generated by two existing coal-fired plants that will be closed.
