Corps awards contract for fixed cone valve for West Virginia's Summersville Dam

Summersville Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract worth $875,000 to Integrated 8(A) Solutions Inc. to supply a fixed cone valve for the Summersville Dam in West Virginia.

The Corps' Huntington District most recently sought bids in April in an unrestricted solicitation that includes the fabrication, assembly, testing and delivery of a 106.75-inch-diameter fixed cone valve, electric operator and appurtenant items. The stainless steel valve body is to consist of a cylinder, a fixed internal deflector cone on the downstream end, internal radial vanes and an upstream flange for attachment to a flanged pipe spool piece.

Summersville -- the second tallest dam east of the Mississippi River -- was completed by the Corps in 1966 for flood control recreation and flow augmentation. Though operated by the Corps, it is the site of the 80-MW Summersville hydroelectric project (No. 10813), licensed to the city of Summersville, W.Va., by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
