U.S. seeks proposals to refurbish components of 2,078-MW Hoover

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids for repair, remanufacture, or new supply of turbine-generator components for 2,078-MW Hoover Dam, on the Colorado River in Arizona and Nevada. Proposals are due July 14.

BuRec’s Lower Colorado Region issued a pre-solicitation notice for the job in October 2007. (HNN 10/16/07)

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.

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 said it expects to award 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 range from $5,000 to $100,000. The government estimates the value of each contract will be $100,000 to $5 million.
