Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas Receives Order for 3 M501J Gas Turbines with Long Term Service Contract from Virginia Electric Power

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas Inc. has received an order from Virginia Electric and Power Company, for the supply of three M501J gas turbines to be installed at VEPCO's Greensville County Power Station (subject to project approval by the State Corporation Commission). The three gas turbines will be manufactured and assembled at MHPSA's Savannah Machinery Works (Savannah, Georgia) to support a project completion date of year end 2018. The new gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plant combines the output of the three, highly efficient M501J gas turbines with a steam turbine resulting in the new construction GTCC block in North America. Utilizing low cost natural gas, the plant will produce approximately 1,600 MW, enough to power over 400,000 homes.

Virginia Electric and Power Company Seeks to Challenge Virginia Supreme Court Ruling on 500-KV Skiffes Creek Project

Dominion announced that its subsidiary is hoping one of the justices involved in sending a key zoning decision back to a local county will agree the case needs to be reheard. Dominion Virginia Power will seek rehearing of a Virginia Supreme Court ruling that sent a zoning decision for a key component of the utility's proposed Surry-Skiffes Creek transmission line back to a local county for approval. The Dominion Resources Inc. subsidiary, which is legally known as Virginia Electric and Power Co., filed its notice of intent to apply for rehearing of the case April 27, following the court's April 16 ruling. The court ruled that the Virginia State Corporation Commission was correct in determining that the utility's preferred route for a 500-kV transmission line that will cross the James River in an area of the state referred to as the Historic Triangle was the least intrusive option, but said a switching station to be added in James City County as part of the project should be subject to local zoning approval. Dominion has warned of rolling blackouts in the region if the line is not built; however the company still awaits a permitting decision by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Dominion Virginia Power to Build its New Greensville County Power Station

Fluor Corporation announced that it was awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by Dominion Virginia Power to build its new Greensville County Power Station, a combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power station in Greensville County, Va. The project investment will exceed $1 billion. Based on the current limited notice-to-proceed, Fluor will book a portion of its scope into backlog in the first quarter of 2015 with the remainder to be booked in 2016 after Dominion receives final permits and approvals. The new 1,600-megawatt Greensville County Power Station is expected to be completed by 2019 and will produce enough electricity to power 400,000 homes at peak demand. Fluor will design the plant at its engineering office in Charlotte, and it is anticipated that about 1,000 craft workers will be onsite during the peak construction period. The Greensville County Power Station will be located on a 1,143-acre site on the Greensville and Brunswick County line in southern Virginia. New power output from the Greensville County facility will fulfill the need for additional generation resources to serve Dominion’s projected customer demand.
