U.S. extends bidding for transformer containment basin at 6,809-MW Grand Coulee Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation has extended the deadline for bids to construct a transformer containment basin for the Third Power Plant at the 6,809-MW Grand Coulee Dam hydroelectric project on the Columbia River in Washington. Bids now are due May 30.

Reclamation previously called for bids by May 17. Reclamation recruited firms in January to supply remote breaker racking systems  and in 2012 to refurbish drum gates at Grand Coulee. It is just beginning major rehabilitation of the 4,485-MW Third Power Plant.

The agency now seeks bids from service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses for construction of a transformer containment basin. Work is to include saw cutting concrete and asphalt; removal and disposal of a catch basin and cooling drain; cutting, removing, and replacing a portion of reinforced pipe drain; excavation, backfill, and compacting; furnishing and installing a pre-cast concrete vault, an exhaust fan, a pre-manufactured catch basin assembly, cast-in-place curbing-slab-waterway, 2-inch grating, asphalt surfacing, and materials for the complete electrical system.

The work is valued at $500,000 to $1 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R13PS10027 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids now are due May 30. For information, contact Misty Gates, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation – PN – Regional Office, 1150 N. Curtis Road, Suite 100, Boise, ID 83706; (1) 208-378-5079; E-mail: mgates@usbr.gov.
