U.S. seeks firms for new HVAC installation at 663-MW Shasta

SACRAMENTO, Calif., U.S. 1/10/12 (PennWell) -- The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of improving the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system at the power plant of 663-MW Shasta Dam on California's Sacramento River. Responses are due Jan. 19.

Reclamation recently overhauled the five-unit Shasta power plant. (Hydro Review July 2010)

The agency now seeks information on firms capable of performing the HVAC work to determine whether to set aside the work for small businesses or issue an unrestricted solicitation.

Reclamation seeks to improve heating and cooling efficiencies of the power plant. Work would include removal of existing condensing units, air handlers, ducting, and associated electrical service for computer and control rooms. A contractor would furnish and install a new water-cooled HVAC system, piping, ducting, and associated electrical components to provide cooling and heating for the computer and security rooms.

The work is expected to cost between $500,000 and $1 million.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R12SY20053 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 10 a.m., Pacific time, Jan. 19. For information, contact Tracy N. Tenholder, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, MP, Regional Office, 2800 Cottage Way, Room E-1815, Sacramento, CA 95825; (1) 916-978-5110; E-mail: ttenholder@usbr.gov.
