The Corps of Engineers seeks proposals to study uprating a generator at 68-MW De Grey powerhouse, on the Caddo River in Arkansas. Proposals are due Sept. 28.
The Corps plans to award a contract for study of Unit 2, one of two units in the project, which began operation in 1971. The contractor is to investigate features, characteristics, and limitations of the unit to identify modifications that might be required for an uprate. It is to produce a report that discusses the suitability of the unit for uprated operation.
The Corps requests cost proposals and qualifications showing design capabilities of staff assigned to the study. Significant experience with hydro generators manufactured by Westinghouse will result in greater consideration, the Corps said.
The Corps’ contracting office in Portland is handling the solicitation, No. W9127N-06-Q-0157. Interested firms must register in Central Contractor Registration www.bpn.gov/ccr/scripts/index.html, and on Federal Technical Data Solutions (FedTeDS), www.fedteds.gov.
Proposals are due Sept. 28, by mail, to Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division, Attention: Patricia Mason, P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208-2946. For information, contact Vicki Satterlund: (1) 503-808-4618; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
