U.S. seeks control installation at Hoover, Davis, Parker dams

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to install unit control modernization equipment for 26 large generating units at 2,078.8-MW Hoover Dam, 255-MW Davis Dam, and 120-MW Parker Dam on the Colorado River. Proposals are due June 5.

BuRec said May 4 it seeks a contractor to install unit controls, governor controls, relay protection, and voltage regulators at Hoover in Arizona and Nevada, Davis in Arizona, and Parker in California. (HNN 1/2/07)

The contractor is to remove and dispose of equipment, and to install government-supplied equipment, including new cabinets, governor components, conduit, cabling, and wiring. The contractor also is to provide support during commissioning and testing of the new equipment. Task orders defining work requirements and schedule requirements will be awarded for every phase of work to be completed by the contractor.

The estimated contract price range is $1 million to $5 million; the estimated range for task orders is $25,000 to $100,000.

BuRec awarded a $5.7 million fabrication contract in October to L&S Electric Inc. for another aspect of the modernization program for the same units. L&S is to design, fabricate, and commission the unit control modernization equipment.

A site visit is planned for 9 a.m. May 24, at Dedication Plaza of Hoover Dam. The site visit is recommended but not mandatory. The government said companies planning to attend the site visit should contact Denise Colwell, (1) 702-293-8234; Fax: (1) 702-293-8499; E-mail: dcolwell@lc.usbr.gov.
