The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of supplying turbine pit in-place machining and line boring in-place machining at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada. Responses to two information requests are due March 22 and 23.

The agency now has issued two sources sought notices seeking information from firms capable of performing machining repair or replacement during turbine-generator maintenance overhaul, including machine repair of fatigued, worn, or water-damaged hydro turbine-generator parts to precision dimensions and tolerances per Hoover Dam design. Reclamation will use capability statements received to determine an appropriate procurement strategy.

The first sources sought notice, Solicitation No. R1130001SSA, seeks in-place machining of the stay ring flange, spiral case o-ring surface, curb plate surface and inside diameter, crown plate surface and inside diameter, lower seal ring inside diameter and upper seal ring inside diameter.
