Galvan chosen to rust-proof 1,600 megawatt Virginia power plant
Galvan Industries has been chosen to provide hot dip galvanizing for the new 1,588-megawatt Greensville County Power Station, which is located on a 1,143-acre site in southern Virginia. When completed, the new power plant will produce enough electricity to power 400,000 homes in Virginia at peak demand.
Galvan is providing corrosion protection for approximately 2,500 tons of structural steel incuding pipe bridge and an inlet filtration structure. Galvanizing will protect the steel against rust without maintenance for the full 36-year expected life of the plant.
Fluor Corporation is the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contractor for Dominion Virginia Power, the ower of the power plant. Dominion’s total investment in the project will exceed $1 billion and result in the largest and most efficient natural gas-fueled power station in Virginia.
