Corps to seek electrical work at 600-MW Richard B. Russell

The Corps of Engineers plans to seeks bids to install static starters and main circuit breakers at its 600-MW Richard B. Russell hydroelectric plant, on the Savannah River system in Georgia.

The Corps said it expects to issue a solicitation about June 19 setting July 19 as the bidding deadline.

The government plans to name a contractor to remove and dispose of old equipment and to install a government-furnished static frequency converter system for four reversible pumped-storage units and new SF6 main circuit breakers on all eight units in the powerhouse.

The Corps issued a pre-solicitation notice for the same work in January 2006, but never issued the solicitation due to a lack of funding.

In the new pre-solicitation, the Corps said it intends to award a fixed-price contract based on the technical submittal and price proposal meeting its criteria and offering the best value to the government. It estimates the value of the work is between $1 million and $5 million.

For information about solicitation No. W912HN-07-R-0030, scheduled for release June 19, contact Marian Alviar, Corps of Engineers, P.O. Box 889, Savannah, GA 31402-0889; (1) 912-652-5539; E-mail:
