France municipality seeks dam safety work on Meurthe River

The municipality of Greater Nancy seeks bids for engineering services to provide dam safety diagnosis and instrumentation of dams on the Meurthe River in France. A site visit was scheduled February 4 with bids due February 25.

France’s navigable waterways agency took bids in 2013 for inspection and monitoring of dams and reservoirs on three French canals. Utility Electricite de France took bids the year before for inspection and monitoring of the dam of the 11.8-MW Vieux Pre pumped-storage project in the Meurthe et Moselle Department.

The Communaute Urbaine du Grand Nancy now seeks bids for dam safety reconnaissance, diagnostics and instrumentation for securing the hydraulic structures of the Meurthe River from Nancy to Lay St. Christophe. The work includes three lots for installation of staff gages, topographical and bathymetric surveys, and diagnostics of civil engineering and moving parts of dams.

Tender documents may be obtained from the address below. An optional site visit was scheduled February 4.

Bids, in French, are due by 5 p.m. February 25. For information, contact Communaute Urbaine du Grand Nancy, Service de la Commande Publique (Bureau 101), 22/24 Viaduc Kennedy CO No. 80036, 54035 Nancy Cedex, France; (33) 383918365; Fax: (33) 383918489; E-mail:; Internet:
