U.S. seeks firms to replace wire rope on control gates at 663-MW Shasta

SACRAMENTO, Calif., U.S. 1/26/12 (PennWell) -- The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of replacing wire rope on control gates of the temperature control device at 663-MW Shasta Dam. Responses are due Feb. 3.

Reclamation recently overhauled the five-unit Shasta power plant on California's Sacramento River. The agency sought firms in January that could improve the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system at the power plant.

The agency now seeks information on firms capable of replacing wire rope on the temperature control device gates to determine whether to set aside the work for small businesses or to issue an unrestricted solicitation.

Reclamation seeks replacement of: 68 corroded wire ropes used to raise and lower the control gates, sockets that connect new wire ropes to equalizing beams, and wire rope slings that connect equalizing beams to gates. It also seeks touch-up painting of hoist drums and sheaves, drum covers, and sheave covers as well as preparation of surfaces and spot repairs on the epoxy coating system of the equalizing beams.

The work is expected to cost between $1 million and $5 million.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R12SY20077 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 10 a.m., Pacific time, Feb. 3. For information, contact Rosana Yousef Goarji, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, MP, Regional Office, 2800 Cottage Way, Room E-1815, Sacramento, CA 95825; (1) 916-978-5004; E-mail: ryousefgoarji@usbr.gov.
