The U.S. Army invites bids by April 28 to supply an advanced injection grouting system for 800-MW Mosul Dam, the largest dam in Iraq, on the Tigris River in Ninewah Province.
Last year, the Multi-National Force-Iraq reported an additional US$20 million in Iraq Reconstruction and Relief Funds was allocated to stabilize Mosul Dam. The reconstruction project includes an upgrade of specialized maintenance equipment, seismic monitors, materials, spare parts, and training.
The dam, which was completed in 1983, required grouting of leaks on a regular basis. The Department of the Army seeks new automatic grout injection equipment to help arrest seepage. All equipment and materials are to be manufactured new, commissioned, and delivered to the project site, with training provided.
The Army said contractors should refer to solicitation documents for the exact closing date. The anticipated contract award date is May 26.
The solicitation is being conducted via the U.S. FedBizOps system on the Internet at www.fbo.gov. Bids may be submitted by e-mail to Joint Contracting Command, Iraq/Afghanistan, Kenneth Nix, Water Sector, Contracting Officer, PCO Compound, U.S. Embassy Palace, APOAE 09316 Baghdad, Iraq; (1) 703-544-1483; E-mail: email@example.com.
