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 was 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 continued 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 were put in place to support the craft population and heavy material deliveries.
Fluor's office in Charlotte, North Carolina, led the design effort with support from our office in the Philippines and global subject matter experts. Fluor's integrated team provided innovative designs, smart supply chain solutions, and experienced construction and commissioning teams. A Fluor subsidiary provided construction tools and rentals.
One thousand craft workers were on site during peak construction. We continued our relationship with Southside Virginia Community College to develop and implement a welding training program.
Modular construction was planned for the project. HRSG and turbines arrived as modules and were assembled at the site. Fluor self-performed both the design and assembly of modularized pipe racks and stair towers, which were assembled in a designated yard adjacent to the new facility.
Fluor also built infrastructure at the site, including power plants, roads, a water treatment facility and utilities.
