U.S. seeks remote operation upgrade for six Monongahela dams

The Corps of Engineers seeks bids for upgrades to the remote operation system of six navigation dams on the Monongahela River of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Bids are due Sept. 10, 2009.

The Corps seeks a fiber-optic communication network to replace the existing control system. It also seeks programmable logic controllers to replace existing PLCs, as well as “human-machine interface” upgrades to communicate with the new PLCs. Valued at $250,000 to $500,000, the work is advertised as a total small business set-aside.

Also included is configuration of the Point Marion Lock and Dam system as a data server. Point Marion is to have the capability to control all six Monongahela remote sites. There are nine Corps dams on the river. (HydroWorld 6/30/09)
