U.S. seeks runner cavitation repair at 428-MW Hungry Horse

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids for turbine runner cavitation repair at the 428-MW Hungry Horse hydroelectric project in Montana. Bids are due Dec. 4.

Hungry Horse, on the south fork of Flathead River, features a 564-foot-tall concrete dam completed in 1953 and a powerhouse with four units uprated and overhauled between 1990 and 1993. Reclamation's Boise office previously announced the solicitation was expected in September.

The agency seeks bids for turbine runner weld repairs on four Francis turbines. Damaged areas contain cavitation-enhanced corrosion with severe surface pitting.

Initially one unit is to be repaired with additional units to be repaired over three years, depending on need and funding. The work over three years is valued at $250,000 to $500,000.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. R12PS10017 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Dec. 4. For information, contact Susie Kramer, Contracting Officer, Bureau of Reclamation - PN - Regional Office, 1150 N. Curtis Road, Suite 100, Boise, ID 83706; (1) 208-378-5156; E-mail: skramer@usbr.gov.
