Firms sought to supply, refurbish mechanical components of 2,078-MW Hoover Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms able to repair, remanufacture, or replace mechanical components needed to refurbish hydroelectric equipment at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam in Arizona and Nevada. Responses are due March 11.

Reclamation previously called for information in March on firms able to modernize eight elevators at Hoover, on the Colorado River. The agency awarded a contract to Andritz Hydro in October to supply four turbine runners to the project.

The agency now seeks information on firms able to repair/remanufacture and machine/rehabilitate existing components, redesign and reverse-engineer replacement components, and furnish new hydroelectric turbine and generator components to replace existing components. It proposes multiple indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contracts for a five-year period.

Reclamation issued a sources sought notice seeking firms able to perform the work in order to determine an appropriate procurement strategy.

Types of components include wicket gates, stator/pole wedge bars, wicket gate bushings, wear plates, engineered fasteners, retaining bolts, break-off screws, large-diameter valves, valve bodies and leaves, large-diameter high strength coupling studs and nuts, thrust bearing key bars, bearing brackets, shift rings, and generator and turbine components.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. 13013LC in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due March 11 by e-mail to the address below. For information, contact Rita Horkan, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, Lower Colorado Regional Office, LC-10212, P.O. Box 61470, Boulder City, NV 89006-1470; (1) 702-293-8036; E-mail:
