U.S. plans SCADA replacement at 7.4-MW R.D. Willis

The Corps of Engineers invites expressions of interest from contractors capable of replacing the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system of its 7.4-MW R.D. Willis hydropower plant in Jasper, Texas. Responses are due Sept. 1.

The Corps district office in Fort Worth issued a notice seeking sources for the upcoming acquisition, rather than an actual request for proposals. The agency said an official solicitation (No. W912G-06-T-0176) could be issued in mid-September, accompanied by detailed specifications.

The Corps seeks engineering services to design a solution to replace the obsolete SCADA system. The work must be completed within nine months of a contract award.

The contractor is to create drawings for the Corps, which would install the front-end data acquisition and control facility at R.D. Willis. The contractor also is to develop and install a new plant remote control system allowing remote monitoring of the plant from the control room of the 52-MW Sam Rayburn powerhouse. Both plants are on the Neches River system.

Interested firms are invited to contact Krista Perdue, contract specialist, by Sept. 1 by e-mail to krista.perdue@swf02.usace.army.mil. For information on technical questions, contact Michael Martinez, (1) 817-886-1603; E-mail: michael.a.martinez@swf02.usace.army.mil.
