RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Virginia Power's Warren County Power Station, under construction in Warren County near Front Royal, has reached a major milestone.  Seventeen months after starting construction, the station is 50 percent complete and on track to be online by the 4th quarter of 2014.

"It is starting to take shape," said Bob McKinley, vice president of Generation Construction. "We are in the final stages of major equipment installation and our work is transitioning to interconnecting the equipment with piping, cable, instrumentation and so on."

In addition to reaching the halfway mark, the station also peaked for the number of employees on site at 1,400. The workforce will start to go down over the next few months.

Once complete, the 1,329-megawatt, combined-cycle power station will employ about 40 employees and produce enough electricity to serve more than 330,000 customers. The station will help Dominion meet the growing energy needs in Northern Virginia and throughout the state.

Warren County Energy Partners, a partnership of Burns & McDonnell and Zachry Construction, is building the station for Dominion.
