French utility seeks concrete rehabilitation at Chambon Dam

CHAMBERY, France 11/23/11 (PennWell) -- Electricite de France (EDF) seeks bids for three lots to rehabilitate concrete damaged by alkali-aggregate reaction at Chambon Dam on the Romanche River in eastern France. Bids in separate solicitations are due December 6.

Chambon is a 90-meter-tall, 293-meter-long concrete gravity dam in France's Isere Department, a high-altitude region subject to severe winter weather. EDF is replacing or rehabilitating concrete that has expanded and cracked due to alkali-aggregate reaction. (HRW July 2010)

EDF seeks bids for three separate lots:

The three lots are expected to require from 27 to 28 months each.
