Massachusetts Technology Collaborative awarded a master services agreement to Gomez and Sullivan Engineers to assist in a state-backed hydro project refurbishment program.
Gomez and Sullivan will serve as a hydropower technical consultant to help rehabilitate and expand hydropower projects in Massachusetts. MTC announced Dec. 4 that it chose the engineering firm from among five proposals submitted in response to a solicitation. (HNN 10/3/06)
MTC, which is chartered by Massachusetts to advance technology-based solutions for economic growth, administers the state’s Renewable Energy Trust Fund.
The request for proposals called for consultants to help hydropower project owners evaluate expansion and rehabilitation options for hydro projects that are either idle or have room for expansion. The consultant also is to help MTC staff evaluate the MTC program’s ability to address hydropower needs and to develop new or modified initiatives to support the hydropower sector.
