U.S. seeks cable replacement at 96-MW Greers Ferry hydro project

Greers Ferry

The Southwestern Power Administration seeks bids from small businesses to replace control and power cables of the 96-MW Greers Ferry hydroelectric project on Arkansas' Little Red River. A bidders meeting is set June 12 with bids due June 24.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $1.4 million contract in 2012 to Hartman-Walsh Painting Co. to clean, repair, and paint interior steel surfaces of two main unit penstock assemblies, scroll cases, and wicket gates at Greers Ferry. The Corps' Little Rock District also awarded a $2.7 million contract in 2011 to BCI Construction to replace switchgear and other electrical equipment at Greers Ferry and the 112-MW Beaver project in Arkansas.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, government power marketer SWPA now seeks bids to replace the control and power cables in the Greers Ferry powerhouse and 161-kilovolt switchyard. The job includes adding new conduit and disposing of removed conduit and cables.

The work 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. DESOL0005610 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box. A bidders meeting is scheduled June 12.

Bids are due June 24. For information, contact Sean L. Long, Southwestern Power Administration, 1 W. Third St., Tulsa, OK 74103-3052; (1) 918-595-6600; Fax: (1) 918-595-6656; E-mail: sean.long@swpa.gov.
