The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced the bidding deadline for supply of new lock gate gearboxes and for restoration of two existing gearboxes at the 810-MW Lower Monumental project on the Lower Snake River in Washington. Bids in two solicitations are due Sept. 22.

The solicitations are among several by the Corps’ Walla Walla District for Lower Monumental, on the Lower Snake River in Washington. The Corps recently awarded contracts for exciter replacement and bridge cranes. It took bids in June for gantry crane work at Lower Monumental.

In a second solicitation, No. W912EF10Q0120, the Corps seeks fabrication and delivery of an unspecified number of lock gearboxes to Lower Monumental. The units are to be of the parallel shaft type, floor mounted, entirely enclosed in welded steel housing designed to maintain accurate alignment of all shafting and gearing.
