Brunswick County Power Station

Fluor was awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by Dominion Virginia Power to build its new Brunswick County Power Station, a combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power station in Brunswick County, Virginia. The project investment exceeds $1 billion.

Fluor recently completed Dominion's Bear Garden Station in Buckingham, Virginia, also fueled by clean-burning natural gas.

As a leader in the gas-fired EPCC arena, Fluor has designed, procured, constructed and commissioned more than 34,000 megawatts of gas-fired power facilities over the past 10 years.

The Brunswick County Power Station was named the 2016 Engineering News-Record (ENR) Mid-Atlantic Best Project in the Energy/Industrial Sector, and was also recognized with the 2016 ENR Mid-Atlantic Excellence in Safety Award.

In December, the Brunswick County Power Station was named the overall 2016 Power Engineering Project of the Year, as well as the 2016 Power Engineering Natural Gas-Fired Project of the Year.

In 2017, Power Magazine recognized the facility as a 2017 Top Plant in Gas-Fueled.

Client's Challenge

Dominion Virginia Power contracted Fluor to provide EPCC services for its new Brunswick County Power Station. Dominion Virginia Power required a new source of electricity to replace power from two existing coal-fired units in eastern Virginia that are scheduled for retirement.

Fluor's Solution

Fluor provided EPCC services for the 1,358-megawatt natural gas-fueled power station, located on a 205-acre site on U.S. Route 58 east of Lawrenceville, Virginia. The plant was designed at Fluor's engineering office in Charlotte, North Carolina. The project was completed with more than 1,500 construction staff onsite during peak construction activity.

The Brunswick County Power Station began producing electricity for its customers in April 2016. The power station produces enough electricity to power 340,000 homes. New power output from the Brunswick County facility will replace electricity generated by existing coal units at two stations in eastern Virginia that will be retired.


The Brunswick County Power Station began producing electricity in April 2016. The new Brunswick power station supports Dominion Virginia Power's goal to provide its customers with clean and reliable energy.

Fluor is scheduled to begin construction on Dominion's new Greensville County Power Station late 2016. The 1,600-megawatt combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power station will be located seven miles from the Brunswick County Power Station.
