The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to supply replacement runners for all three turbines at its 198.72-MW Folsom hydroelectric plant, on California’s American River. Bids are due June 17.

The contractor is to: fabricate and test one turbine model and provide a test report; furnish and deliver three stainless steel vertical Francis-type runners, nose cones, and coupling bolts; and furnish and deliver shear pins. Government employees are to install the equipment.

BuRec said it could award the contract in August. The first runner is to be delivered between July 1, 2010, and Sept. 30, 2010. The second runner is to be delivered between July 1, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2011, and the third between July 1, 2012, and Sept. 30, 2012.
