U.S. extends bidding again for gate maintenance at 2,620-MW Chief Joseph Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers further extended the deadline for bids to perform spillway gate lifecycle maintenance at 2,620-MW Chief Joseph Dam on the Columbia River in Washington. Bids now are due Feb. 25.

The Corps’ Seattle District previously called for bids by Feb. 10 and Jan. 15 and 28. It requested information last year about firms able to perform the spillway gate lifecycle maintenance at Chief Joseph. The Corps took bids in July to supply generator thrust bearing coolers at Chief Joseph.

The Seattle District now seeks bids for lifecycle maintenance on Chief Joseph’s 19 spillway gates, which measure 60 feet tall by 35 feet wide. Work includes replacement of wire rope and gate seals, gate recoating, gearbox inspection and rehabilitation, design and fabrication of rail system and trolley systems, cathodic protection, flushing and oil replacement in seal heaters, removal of backing bars and weld repairs.

The work is valued at $5 million to $10 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DW15R0002 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
