Westinghouse and Dominion modernizing power station

Published on: 

Specialized program will extend the delivery of carbon-free electricity in the region

Westinghouse Electric has signed an instrumentation and control (I&C) contract with Dominion Energy for the implementation of a Digital Modernization Program at the Surry Power Station. Combined, Dominion's Surry and North Anna plants produce almost one third of the electricity for the company's approximately 2.7 million customers in Virginia and North Carolina. The new contract will support Dominion's Subsequent License Renewal program for Surry Units 1 and 2, ensuring the continued delivery of carbon-free energy for 419,000 homes.

During the execution of the program, which is subject to regulatory approval, Westinghouse and Dominion will upgrade 23 safety and non-safety systems over a nine-year period. The program will include digital I&C hardware, software, design, engineering, manufacture, delivery, and engineering support.


Each unit will be outfitted with Westinghouse's Common-Q safety-grade platform, as well as the Ovation I&C platform. These technologies reduce or eliminate the need for surveillances.
