U.S. seeks machinery, control, lighting rehab at Lower St. Anthony Falls Dam

Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to replace central control station electrical equipment at its Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam in Minneapolis. A site visit is scheduled May 28, with bids due June 13.

Constructed in 1956 for navigation on the Mississippi River, Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam includes a concrete spillway with four tainter gates. Though having no hydropower, the Corps dam is the location of the 8.98-MW Lower St. Anthony Falls hydroelectric project (No. 12451) licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Comission. That project was placed in service in 2011 after delays caused by collapse of a highway bridge in 2007.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps' St. Paul District seeks bids to remove and replace motor controls, including feeder breakers, motor starters, lighting panels, and relay chasses in the main office: replace dam gate and lock tainter gate limit switches and wiring; furnish and install temporary breaker panels and wiring for temporary power; and provide debug, startup and function test demonstration of installed equipment. 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. W912ES14B0009 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box. A site visit is scheduled May 28.

Bids are due by 2 p.m., Central time, June 13. For information, contact Lisa Draves, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, CEMVP-CT, 180 E. Fifth St., St. Paul, MN 55101-1678; (1) 651-290-5614; E-mail: lisa.a.draves@usace.army.mil.
