U.S. seeks bids to refurbish transformers at 1,076.6-MW Bonneville Dam

Bonneville Lock and Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to refurbish generator step-up transformers at the Second Powerhouse of 1,076.6-MW Bonneville Lock and Dam in Oregon and Washington. Bids are due Aug. 30.

The Corps' Portland District requested information in December on firms able to supply and support air gap/vibration monitoring sensor equipment at Bonneville, on the Columbia River. It also took bids last year for fish ladder improvements to address lamprey passage at Bonneville.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps now seeks bids to replace obsolete equipment and make improvements to the two in-service GSU transformers and one spare transformer at Bonneville's Second Powerhouse. The two main units have been in service for 25 years. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W9127N13R0009 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Aug. 30. For information, contact Jeffrey Renner, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division (CECT-NWP), P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208-2946; (1) 503-808-4630; E-mail: jeff.s.renner@usace.army.mil.
