The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to fabricate and supply intake gates and draft tube bulkheads for turbine maintenance at 2,160-MW John Day Dam on the Columbia River in Oregon. Responses are due Oct. 27.
The Corps' Portland District took information in September on firms able to fabricate and supply a turbine maintenance platform and in August on firms able to upgrade Kaplan turbines at John Day. It awarded contracts at John Day in February for drilling and grouting services.
In a sources sought notice, the Corps now seeks information on firms with the ability to fabricate, deliver and assemble three intake gates (four sections make one gate) and two draft tube bulkheads (three sections make one bulkhead) to isolate main turbine-generator units so they can be dewatered for maintenance or repair. Responses are to help the Corps determine the type of solicitation for the work.
The intake gates are to be placed on the upstream side of a unit and the bulkheads are to be placed on the downstream side. The largest intake gate section is to be 22.5 feet wide by 12.5 feet tall. The largest draft tube bulkhead is to be 36 feet 10 inches wide by 11.5 feet tall.
The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W9127N15R0009 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.
Responses are due, preferably by e-mail, by 3 p.m., Pacific time, Oct. 27 to the address below.
