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.
