The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to carry out mechanical and structural rehabilitation of bridge cranes and a lifting beam at the 320-MW Fort Randall hydroelectric project on the Missouri River in South Dakota. Responses are due Oct. 10.
The Corps' Omaha District took bids in 2012 for six crane inspections and engineering reports at Fort Randall. More recently, the Corps has been seeking a switchyard upgrade at the project. Flowmeter Services won a contract last year to supply flow meter panels for Fort Randall.
In a sources sought notice, the Omaha District seeks information on firms able to perform mechanical and structural rehabilitation and a capacity re-rate of two 150-ton powerhouse bridge cranes and one 280-ton lifting beam at Fort Randall. Responses are to help the Corps determine the type of solicitation for the work.
Each crane would be re-rated to a capacity of 115 tons at the main hoist hook, while the lifting beam would be re-rated to 290 tons at the hook. The work is expected to require 550 days at a cost of $2.5 million to $5 million.
A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9128F15R0002 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.
Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 2 p.m., Central time, Oct. 10. For information, contact David Neal, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, 1616 Capital Ave., Omaha, NE 68102-4901; (1) 402-995-2816; E-mail: email@example.com.
