Canada utility seeks engineering for fire protection systems at 479-MW Grand Rapids hydro project

Canadian utility Manitoba Hydro seeks bids to serve as advocate engineer for design of fire protection systems for the 479-MW Grand Rapids hydroelectric project in Manitoba. Bids are due Nov. 7.

Manitoba Hydro took bids in May for circuit breakers and switchgear modifications at Grand Rapids and the 165-MW Seven Sisters project. It previously called for bids by Dec. 4 to supply governors for the 695-MW Keeyask hydroelectric project being built on the Lower Nelson River.  

Built in 1968 on the Saskatchewan River, Grand Rapids features four turbine-generators.  

Manitoba Hydro seeks bids for an advocate engineer to prepare technical documents for the utility to procure a design-build contractor to supply and install fire protection systems required for generator step-up transformers for Grand Rapids Units 2 and 4, plus one spare.
