Zachry selected to build Dominion’s Warren County Project
Zachry Industrial, Inc., subsidiary of Zachry Holdings, Inc., has been selected by Dominion Virginia Power to provide turnkey EPC services in a joint venture, for their Warren County Project located in Front Royal, Virginia. The Warren County project anticipates a full notice to proceed in May 2012, with a completion in 2014.
Once built, the 3-on-1 configured, 1,300-MW combined cycle power plant will provide energy to approximately 325,000 homes. Major technology for the plant will include a Mitsubishi TC4F steam turbine, three Mitsubishi M501GAC gas turbines and dry cooling via an air-cooled condenser.
“Our culture and values align well with Dominion, and we are excited about the opportunity this project will bring in renewing our customer relationship,” said Randy Park, vice president for Zachry. “Our successful bid for this work was built around the depth and completeness of our EPC offering, our recent work with Mitsubishi G technology and our flourishing EPC delivery experience.”
As an economic stimulator to the area, the Warren County project will generate regional contract awards for certain materials and services, and will create hundreds of construction jobs. Zachry will look to their extensive employee database, giving hiring preference to former employees (including Virginia residents), as well as qualified local craft to fill available positions.
