Turbine Runner

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to supply turbine packing box lantern rings for 2,620-MW Chief Joseph Dam on the Columbia River in Washington. Bids are due April 8.

Chief Joseph currently is undergoing refurbishment of 10 Francis turbines to increase their rated output and peak efficiency. The Corps took bids in February for drilling to replace inclinometers monitoring a landslide on the left bank of the project. It awarded a contract last year for dissolved gas and temperature monitoring at Chief Joseph.

In a solicitation set aside for small business, the Corps' Seattle District now seeks bids for fabrication, inspection and shipment of two two-piece turbine packing box lantern rings including all hardware components for a complete lantern ring assembly.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DW14Q0031 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due April 8. For information, contact Galen Freed, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, Attn.: CENWS-CT, P.O. Box 3755, Seattle, WA 98124-3755; (1) 206-316-3877; E-mail: galen.t.freed@usace.army.mil.
