Fluor (NYSE: FLR), in partnership with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, has been selected by Dominion Virginia Power (NYSE: D) to provide project development services for Dominion’s proposed 1,470 MW nuclear unit at the North Anna Power Station in Louisa County, Va.

Once Dominion Virginia Power receives federal permission to proceed, which is expected in 2015, and decides whether to build Unit 3, Fluor will perform the construction of the facility.

Project development activities are expected to continue throughout 2013 and beyond in preparation for release of a full engineering, procurement and construction contract for an ESBWR nuclear power plant. Fluor’s Greenville, S.C., operations center will lead the project development efforts.
