The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission awarded an $18 million contract to the Louis Berger Group to provide hydroelectric environmental and engineering support services for a planned five-year program in the Office of Energy Projects.
FERC selected Louis Berger from companies responding to a solicitation for the services, issued earlier this year. (HNN 7/31/07) The hydropower regulator said the contract is worth up to $18,027,554 over the five-year period.
FERC anticipates most work performed under the contract will require preparation of environmental impact statements, although some work will require environmental assessments. Additionally, FERC said a small component of work could require the contractor to conduct pre-license application activities for license applications.
