VA Marcellus-Fed Electric Plant Snags “Project of the Year” Award

Brunswick County Power Station – click for larger image

As we reported in April, the newest member of Dominion’s power generation fleet, the 1,358 megawatt, natural gas-fired Brunswick Power Station (Brunswick County, Virginia) began producing electricity for customers on Monday, April 25 (see Dominion Brunswick NatGas-Fired Plant Begins Electric Generation). The station produces enough electricity to power 325,000 homes. The power plant will eventually be fed by Marcellus Shale gas coming from Dominion’s own $5 billion, 550-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline. But right now it uses at least some Marcellus/Utica gas coming from the Williams Transco pipeline. There is a power generation conference going on in Orlando, FL right now (wish we were there! brutally cold today in Upstate NY). At the conference, awards have been given out by Power Engineering magazine. The Brunswick Power Station has won two prestigious awards: “Best Overall Generation Project of the Year,” and “Best Gas-Fired Project of the Year.” Congrats to Dominion!…
