WESTINGHOUSE TO MODERNIZE SURRY NUCLEAR POWER PLANT IN VIRGINIA
Westinghouse Electric Company has signed a contract with Dominion Energy to design, manufacture, and deliver Replacement Steam Generators at Surry Nuclear Power Station in Virginia.
Westinghouse and Dominion will engineer and manufacture six steam generators to be delivered starting in 2028 with installation beginning in 2029. The contract further supports Dominion’s Subsequent License Renewal (SLR) program to extend the Long Term Operation (LTO) of Surry Units 1 and 2, ensuring the continued delivery of carbon-free energy for 419,000 homes through 2053.
The new deal follows a contract between Westinghouse and Dominion signed in 2021 for a major Instrumentation and Control (I&C) upgrade. Combined, Dominion’s Surry and North Anna nuclear plants produce about a third of the electricity for the company’s 2.7 million customers in Virginia and North Carolina.
The steam generators will be fabricated at the state-of-the-art Westinghouse Italy (WEI) facility in Monfalcone, Italy, and are based on Westinghouse’s original F-Series units with multiple enhancements to maintain an industry-leading best in-service performance.
