Pike Electric wins switchyard contract from SCE&G

10 November 2009

The Shaw Group has awarded Pike Electric Corporation an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the new 230kV transmission switchyard and offsite power system for the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in South Carolina.

The construction of this switchyard, and the associated electrical work, is in support of the two nuclear power units being added by South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G), principal subsidiary of SCANA Corporation, and the South Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper), a state-owned electric and water utility in South Carolina. The new units, known as V.C. Summer 2 and 3, are scheduled for completion in 2016 and 2019.

"V.C. Summer 2 and 3 will be among the first new nuclear units constructed in this country in decades, and we are extremely pleased to have been selected for this project. This EPC award is important for Pike, as it recognizes our full platform of energy solutions and fulfills a strategic goal to participate in the opportunities presented by the renewed interest in US nuclear power," said Eric Pike, chairman and CEO of Pike. "The engineering for this project begins immediately utilizing Pike's Charlotte office and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2015."
