Corps awards contracts for Missouri River hydropower rehabilitation projects

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a pair of contracts for work at two hydroelectric projects located along the Missouri River.

The first -- a US$4.1 million contract awarded to J.F. Brennan Co. Inc. -- calls for the rehabilitation of spillway gates at South Dakota's 494-MW Big Bend hydropower project.

The Corps' Omaha District last solicited bids for the project in July, which includes 3-D modeling and analysis; non-destructive testing; structural repair design; welding; corrosion repair; sandblasting; lead-based paint removal; wire rope replacement; concrete spall repair; gait seal replacement; painting, design and replacement of hoist controls and switches.

The Corps also recently awarded a contract for Big Bend dam embankment repairs to Brunow Contracting LLC.

Second, the Omaha District awarded a $597,800 contract to Dakota Earthmoving Inc. for bank stabilization at the 786-MW Oahe Dam in South Dakota.

Bids for the work were last called for in June.

The projects are a response to 2011 flooding in the Missouri River Basin, which also includes work at other Omaha District hydropower facilities.
