Fluor was awarded a limited notice to proceed on Dominion's Greensville power station in April 2015. In July 2016 Dominion granted Fluor full notice to proceed with engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning on the project. This new project is Fluor's third successive project for Dominion.
The facility features three Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPSA) 501 J advanced combustion turbine generators, followed by three Alstom Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) operating in combined cycle with one Alstom steam turbine generator. The design includes an 80-cell Air Cooled Condenser (ACC), and Thermal Energy Storage (TES) System. The TES system includes a field erected TES tank and chiller system which improves peak energy output during summer ambient conditions. Fluor will be continuing our attention to sustainable design with plans to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification for the Control and Administration building. Additionally, nearly three miles of new and/or upgraded roads will be put in place to support the craft population and heavy material deliveries.
Fluor's office in Charlotte, North Carolina, is leading the design effort with support from our office in the Philippines and global subject matter experts. Fluor's integrated team provides innovative designs, smart supply chain solutions and experienced construction and commissioning teams. AMECO, Fluor's equipment subsidiary, is providing construction tools and rentals.
Fluor anticipates 1,000 craft workers on site during peak construction. We continue our relationship with Southside Virginia Community College to develop and implement a welding training program.
Modular construction is planned for the project. HRSG and turbines will arrive as modules and assembled at the site. Fluor is self-performing both the design and assembly of modularized pipe racks and stair towers.
Fluor is also building infrastructure at the site to include power plants, roads, a water treatment facility and utilities. We are developing extensive road work to connect the site to the nearest U.S. highway.
