The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to replace two turbine runners at 30 MW Hills Creek Dam, on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River in Oregon. Bids now are due Sept. 9.
The Corps’ Portland District previously scheduled a site visit June 8 with bids to be due Aug. 24. (HydroWorld 5/24/10) The agency seeks modeling, manufacturing, and installation of two new runners, including removal of existing runners at the hydro plant near Oak Ridge, Ore. (HydroWorld 5/7/10)
The Corps awarded a contract in 2006 to Lehoczky/Vanguard Joint Venture of Bradenton, Fla., for a generator uprate study at Hills Creek. The project was among 13 government dams covered by a 2008 biological opinion designed to make the dams friendlier to fish, to improve river water temperatures, and to improve fish hatchery practices.
