Brunswick County Power Station Recognized by ENR Mid-Atlantic as Best Project and Excellence in Safety
IRVING, Texas – Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that the Brunswick County Power Station has been named Best Project in the energy/industrial category as well as Excellence in Safety Best Project by Engineering News-Record (ENR) Mid-Atlantic. Fluor designed, constructed and commissioned the 1,358-megawatt natural gas combined-cycle facility for Dominion Virginia Power.
The ENR Mid-Atlantic awards program features 18 categories dedicated to honoring the best construction projects and the companies that designed and built them. Judges selected the winning projects from 65 nominations in the Mid-Atlantic region, which encompasses Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety, and construction and design quality.
Brunswick County Power Station began commercial operations in April 2016 with Fluor providing engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the facility. Fluor’s construction staff and craft peaked at about 1,500 team members. The construction team successfully installed more than 38,000 cubic yards of concrete, 142,000 linear feet of pipe and 420 miles of cable. The project was completed ahead of schedule. Significant attention was placed on safety, a core value for both Fluor and Dominion.
The honors were announced Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at the ENR Mid-Atlantic awards presentation in Baltimore.
“Receiving this recognition from ENR Mid-Atlantic is truly an honor for Fluor,” said Wolfgang Greinke, vice president of Fluor’s Power business. “This project exemplifies Fluor’s expertise and commitment to bringing clean, natural gas energy to the grid. We are particularly proud that the project was recognized for safety excellence. Our project team, together with Dominion, is truly deserving of this notable recognition from ENR.”
“Dominion is very proud to win this award from ENR—along with Fluor—for the Brunswick County Power station project,” said Mark Mitchell, vice president of generation construction for Dominion. “We are especially proud that the station also won the Excellence in Safety Award. Providing clean, affordable and reliable power every day to our customers is our commitment, and by adding Brunswick to our fleet, it contributes daily to doing just that.”
As a top category winning project in ENR Mid-Atlantic, Brunswick County Power Station will compete in the national competition with projects recognized in the energy/industrial category in ENR’s other eight regions across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The selected project will be recognized as an ENR Best of the Best Project in a special editorial feature in early 2017.
