Canada utility extends bidding for gates installation at 47-MW Ladore hydro project

Canadian utility BC Hydro has extended the deadline for bids to install replacement intake gates at the 47-MW Ladore hydroelectric project on the Campbell River in British Columbia. Bids now are due Aug. 14.

BC Hydro previously called for bids by Aug. 7. It took bids in December to manufacture and supply intake gates for Ladore with an option to supply gates to the 67.5-MW Strathcona project also on the Campbell River.

BC Hydro is in the process of upgrading the two hydro projects and a third in the Campbell River region of Vancouver Island, 126-MW John Hart project. It took bids in July for engineering design services to refurbish Salmon River Diversion Dam, which diverts water for generation by Ladore and John Hart.

BC Hydro now seeks bids to install two intake operating gates to be supplied by BC Hydro for the Ladore project, with an option to install two gates at Strathcona. In addition to gate installation, the contract would include supply and installation of associated works.
