U.S. seeks crane control refurbishment at Mahoning Creek Dam

PITTSBURGH, Pa., U.S. 2/10/12 (PennWell) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to replace and refurbish components of gantry crane controls at the Corps' Mahoning Creek Dam on Mahoning Creek in Armstrong County, Pa. Bids are due Feb. 21.

The Corps built the 162-foot-tall dam in 1941 for flood control, incorporating a 9-foot-diameter power conduit to permit addition of hydropower in the future. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a license in 2011 to Mahoning Creek Hydroelectric Co. LLC for the 6-MW Mahoning Creek project (No. 12555), to be built at the Corps dam.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps' Pittsburgh District now seeks bids to replace the crane travel and hoist motion control switches on gantry crane No. 2, replace the door-mounted disconnect switch on the crane control panel, and refurbish the gantry crane hoist brake.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W911WN12T0010 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Feb. 21. For information, contact Michelle Anderson, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District, 1000 Liberty Ave., W.S. Moorhead Federal Building, 22nd Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4186; (1) 412-395-7417; E-mail: michelle.l.anderson@usace.army.mil.
