U.S. solicits bearing work for 2,078-MW Hoover

The Bureau of Reclamation invites statements of capability for the repair or remanufacture of guides and thrust bearings for the 2,078-MW Hoover Dam power plant. Responses are due Dec. 15.

BuRec’s Lower Colorado Region Contracting Office seeks repair or remanufacture of various guides and thrust bearings, including eight to 16 thrust bearing shoes. The Hoover Dam power plant, part of the Boulder Canyon Project, on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada, features bearings ranging in weight from 2,000 to 3,700 pounds. (HNN 10/12/06)

Bearing assemblies are to be picked up at the Hoover Dam Central Warehouse in Boulder City, transported to the contractor’s facility, and returned to the warehouse on completion of work.

BuRec said it could award an indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract with a base and four one-year option periods. Multiple contracts might be awarded. Fixed-price task orders will be issued as required. Task orders are expected to total $25,000 to $100,000, with a total value of each contract between $100,000 and $500,000.

BuRec said it will use the capability statements to determine procurement strategy, in particular whether a set-aside or an alternate procurement strategy is warranted. When it is determined that a formal solicitation will be issued, the government will post a pre-solicitation notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website, www.fedbizopps.gov.
