U.S. awards four contracts for 2,078-MW Hoover

The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded contracts to four companies for repair, remanufacture, or new supply of turbine-generator components for 2,078-MW Hoover Dam, on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada.

The contracts are worth a total of up to $20 million over five years, with each contract worth up to $5 million.

BuRec said it selected Hydro Power Services LLC of Chattanooga, Tenn.; Magnolia Metal Corp. of Omaha, Neb.; Precision Machine and Supply Inc. of Lewiston, Idaho; and Voith Siemens Hydro Power Generation Inc. of York, Pa.

The agency’s Lower Colorado Region said components would include wicket gates, wear plates, engineered fasteners, retaining bolts, break-off screws, high strength coupling studs and nuts, and thrust bearing key bars. Work is to be performed at the contractor’s facility. Components are to be shipped to the Hoover Dam warehouse near Boulder City.

The companies responded to a solicitation in which BuRec said it expected to award multiple indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts with a one-year base period and two two-year option periods. (HNN 7/22/08) Fixed-price delivery orders will be issued as required to recondition or purchase components.
