“This is not a pomp and circumstance firm.”

Last month, Dominion Virginia Power (NYSE: D) announced that its new 1,358 megawatt combined cycle, natural gas-fired power station in Brunswick County Virginia will have three state-of-the-art heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) provided by Alstom, a global leader in power generation technology. 

The new power plant facility will be located nearly 180 miles south of Washington D.C near Lawenceville, Virginia, and is expected to provide enough power to meet the demands of more than 325,000 homes when it comes online in the year 2016.  Alstom is the equipment manufacturer contracted to Fluor Corporation - the firm managing the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning for the project.  The HRSGs will be the largest supplied by Alstom in the North America market.

HRSGs are linkage equipment facilitating the combined cycle plant's gas-fired and steam-powered generation capacities.  When the gas turbine's super hot exhaust passes through the HRSG, water is converted to steam which then turns the steam turbine to generate power.  The new Alstom HRSG units incorporate Alstom's "Optimized for Cycle and Constructability" design that, according to Alstom, will offer better and more efficent gas plant cycling.  

Construction of the Brunswick County Power Station is still pending approval by the Virginia State Corporation Commission.  For more information or to track updates about the new plant, review the Brunswick County plant's page on the Dominion website.
