Corps seeks firms for emergency hydro turbine-generator, pump rehab work

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to perform emergency inspection, rehabilitation and replacement of hydroelectric turbines, generators, and pump motors in Corps facilities throughout the continental United States. Responses are due Aug. 22.

The Corps’ Portland, Ore., District took bids in January for similar work in the Corps’ Northwestern Region. It also took information in April on firms capable of providing hydroelectric power and pumping plant engineering, design, and analysis services.  

In a sources sought notice, the Corps’ Mobile District now seeks information on small businesses able to perform emergency non-routine inspection, rehabilitation and replacement services for generators, large pump motors and hydroelectric turbines at Corps facilities at various locations in the U.S. Responses are to be used to make acquisition decisions.

The Mobile District anticipates issuing multiple award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity firm fixed-price contracts for one base and four option years. Up to five contracts might be awarded for overall contract value not to exceed $100 million.

Equipment to be rehabilitated includes generators and large (500-horsepower and over) pump motors, turbines and large (500-hp and over) pumps, and water passage and closure devices including their power and control units. Major rehabilitations, replacements, upgrades and installations principally would be limited to generators, Kaplan turbines of at least 90 inches in diameter and Francis turbines of at least 39 inches in throat diameter. Pump and pump motor work would be mainly on units of 500 hp and above.

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. W9127814L0015 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 2 p.m., Central time, Aug. 22, with a subject line “Response to Rehab major mechanical equipment.” For information, contact Alisa C.
