U.S. seeks substation replacement at 2,457-MW Chief Joseph

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to replace a substation at 2,457.3-MW Chief Joseph Dam, on the Columbia River near Bridgeport, Wash. Bids are due Aug. 9.

The Corps' Seattle District said in April that it planned to seek bids to replace exciters at Chief Joseph, but subsequently canceled the solicitation, saying it would readvertise it in the future. Chief Joseph has been undergoing refurbishment for several years.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps now seeks removal of an SQ0 and CQ03 480-volt substation, as well as furnishing, installation, and testing of a new CQ03.1 and CQ03.2 480-volt substation. The work is expected to cost between $1 million $5 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W912DW11R0020 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Aug. 9. For information, contact Scott Britt, Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attn.: CENWS-CT, P.O. Box 3755, Seattle, WA 98124-3755; (1) 206-764-3517; E-mail: scott.w.britt@usace.army.mil.
