U.S. extends bidding to refurbish transformers at 1,076.6-MW Bonneville Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to refurbish generator step-up transformers at the Second Powerhouse of 1,076.6-MW Bonneville Lock and Dam in Oregon and Washington. Bids now are due Sept. 6.

The Corps’ Portland District originally called for bids by Aug. 30. It requested information in December on firms able to supply and support air gap/vibration monitoring sensor equipment at Bonneville, on the Columbia River. It also took bids last year for fish ladder improvements to address lamprey passage at Bonneville.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps now seeks bids to replace obsolete equipment and make improvements to the two in-service GSU transformers and one spare transformer at Bonneville’s Second Powerhouse. The two main units have been in service for 25 years. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W9127N13R0009 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids now are due Sept. 6. For information, contact Jeffrey Renner, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division (CECT-NWP), P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208-2946; (1) 503-808-4630; E-mail: jeff.s.renner@usace.army.mil.
