WALLA WALLA, Wash., U.S. 2/10/12 (PennWell) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has reissued a solicitation to supply submersible power cable for extended submerged barrier screens at 980-MW McNary Dam on the Columbia River. Bids now are due Feb. 17.

The Corps' Walla Walla District previously called for bids by Jan. 4 and Dec. 21, 2011, in a set-aside for small businesses. The new solicitation is open to firms of all sizes.

The Corps seeks 3,000 feet of submersible cable to provide power and control capability to the extended submerged barrier screens at McNary, near Umatilla, Ore.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W912EF12Q0041 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Feb. 17. For information, contact Julie Morris, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. 3rd Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7220; E-mail: julie.m.morris@usace.army.mil.

Welding repairs sought for McNary emergency intake gate bulkheads

The Corps' Walla Walla District also seeks information about firms capable of performing welding repairs on emergency intake gate bulkheads at McNary. Responses are due Feb. 16.

The Corps solicited information in December about firms capable of performing other emergency intake gate work related to fish screen installations at McNary.

In the latest solicitation, the Corps said that, prior to 1995, emergency intake gate bulkheads 1 and 3 were torch cut into four pieces. Later the sections were re-welded, though the bulkheads have been out of service since 2006. Ultrasonic testing in 2007 revealed the welds to be unsatisfactory.

The Corps seeks information on firms capable of repairing the bulkheads and making them ready to place back in service. The work is valued at $100,000 to $500,000.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W912EF12RSS14 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by noon Feb. 16. For information, contact Elaine M. Vandiver, Contract Specialist, Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7221; E-mail: elaine.m.vandiver@usace.army.mil.
