French engineer seeks gates, turbines for two hydro projects

Hydropower engineer Hydrostadium seeks bids to supply gates to the Saint-Pierre-en-Faucigny hydro project and turbines to the 1.86-MW Hautefage hydro project. Bids in separate solicitations are due May 11.

Hydrostadium, a subsidiary of Electricite de France (EDF), took bids in February to supply a trashrack and downstream fish passage at the 8-MW Pebernat hydroelectric project and in December 2014 to renovate the command and control systems of six hydroelectric projects operated by EDF on the lower Maulde River in France. It also took bids last year to renovate turbines and ancillary equipment of the 4-MW Bazacle project.

Hydrostadium now seeks bids to renovate gates and trashracks on Beffay Dam, part of the Saint-Pierre-en-Faucigny hydroelectric project near Bonneville, operated by Groupement d’Usines Pressy-Bioge.

In a separate solicitation, HydroStadium seeks bids to supply and install two 930-kW instream flow turbine-generators for the 1.8-MW Hautefage Dam hydroelectric project at Correze.

Tender documents may be obtained for each solicitation from the address below. Bids, in French, for each solicitation are due by noon May 11 to the address below.
