U.S. to seek work on components of 2,078-MW Hoover

The Bureau of Reclamation plans to seek proposals for repair, remanufacture, or new supply of turbine-generator components for 2,078-MW Hoover Dam, on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada. A request for proposals is expected Oct. 29.

The agency said components would include wicket gates, wear plates, engineered fasteners, retaining bolts, break-off screws, high strength coupling studs and nuts, and thrust bearing key bars. Work is to be performed at the contractor’s facility. Components are to be shipped to the Hoover Dam warehouse near Boulder City.

BuRec previously issued a request for statements of capability from firms wanting to do the work. (HNN 8/27/07)

Principal features of the work include:
o Weld and coatings repair of fatigued, worn, or water-damaged turbine-generator parts to precision dimensions and tolerances;
o Fabrication of new replacement parts;
o Reverse-engineering to include three-dimensional digitizing and computer-aided repair or replacement of hardware; and
o Industry standard inspection and testing.

BuRec anticipates awarding multiple indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts with a one-year base period and two two-year option periods. Fixed-price delivery orders would be issued as required to recondition or purchase components. Each task order is expected to be in the range of $5,000 to $100,000. The government estimates the total value of each contract would be from $100,000 to $5 million.

The solicitation, No. 07SP308090, is to be issued Oct. 29 on the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fedbizopps.gov. Offers would be due 30 days later, the government said. Bidders must register in the Central Contractor Registration system, www.ccr.gov.
