Dominion’s 1,329 MW Warren County gas-fired power station enters operation

Dominion Virginia (NYSE: D)’s natural gas-fired, 1,329 MW Warren County Power Station, in Virginia, has entered commercial operation.

“Our newest power station is a welcome addition to a generating fleet that is already one of the cleanest and most-reliable in the nation,” said David A. Christian, chief executive officer-Dominion Generation.  “It fills a critical need to meet growing demand in the Commonwealth and in Northern Virginia in particular. It is built to be both environmentally and economically efficient, promoting quality of life as well as economic development.”

Warren County Energy partners, a partnership of Burns & McDonnell and Zachry Construction, constructed the station for Dominion. The workforce peaked with 1,500 employees.

The power station cost approximately $1.1 billion to construct. Post-construction economic benefits are expected to be more than $35 million annually.

The company operates a diverse mix of generation, including nuclear, coal, hydro, natural gas and renewables, such as wind and solar.
