The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to seek bids to upgrade the dam safety monitoring system at the 402-MW Dworshak Dam hydroelectric project in Idaho.
The three-unit Dworshak plant began generating electricity in 1973 on the Clearwater River. The Corps awarded a contract in 2009 to Crane Technologies Group Inc. to rehabilitate two 350-ton bridge cranes at Dworshak. (HydroWorld 4/17/09)
The Corps’ Walla Walla District seeks an upgrade including replacement of vibrating wire sensors inside the dam, installation of new sensors and communication cabling and related hardware, upgrade or replacement of the automated data acquisition system, supply and commissioning of network-based data handling and presentation software, and minor civil works.
The Corps said a solicitation is to be available in the near future on the Federal Business Opportunities website, www.fbo.gov. Bids are to be due about 30 days after the solicitation issuance.
A pre-solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities website by entering solicitation No. W912EF10Q0049 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
