Bidding extended for hydro generator overhauls at 1,312-MW Glen Canyon Dam

Glen Canyon Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation has extended the deadline for bids for four hydro generator overhauls at 1,312-MW Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River. Bids now are due July 2.

Reclamation previously called for bids by June 11. It issued the solicitation for full and open competition after an October industry day determined there was an insufficient number of small businesses that expressed interest in being prime contractor for the work.

The agency took bids in April from small businesses to replace generator step-up transformers at Glen Canyon.

Reclamation now seeks bids to rebuild and rewind Glen Canyon generators G1, G3, G5, and G6. Work is to include removal and disposal of stator cores and armature windings; testing and installation of new stator cores and armature windings; furnishing armature winding spare parts; and removing, refurbishing, and reinstalling generator field poles.

The work is valued at more than $10 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. R13PS40010 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids now are due July 2. For information contact Washington Bennett, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation - UC - SLC, 125 S. State St., Salt Lake City, UT 84138; (1) 801-524-3853; E-mail:
