The Corps of Engineers is preparing to solicit proposals for design and supply of two advanced turbines for the 603-MW Ice Harbor hydroelectric project on the Snake River in Washington.
The Corps issued a pre-solicitation notice, saying proposals would be due about 60 days after the solicitation is issued. The Corps previously called for industry comments on a draft solicitation for an advanced ï¿½fish friendlyï¿½ hydropower turbine for Ice Harbor. (HNN 1/4/08)
The Corps said work would include plant, labor, equipment, materials, incidentals, and work to design an ï¿½improved fish passage environmentï¿½ fixed-blade turbine. The contractor also would supply the turbine runner and appurtenant components. Additional requirements would govern the design of an ï¿½improved fish passage environmentï¿½ adjustable-blade turbine, with the optional supply of the adjustable-blade runner and appurtenant components.
The fixed and adjustable runners are to replace existing runners in Units 2 and 3.
The notice is available on the Federal Business Opportunities website www.fbo.gov by entering solicitation number W912EF09R0004 in the ï¿½Quick Searchï¿½ box.
