U.S. seeks bids to refurbish, paint tainter gates at 340-MW Bull Shoals Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to refurbish and paint tainter gates at 340-MW Bull Shoals Dam on Arkansas’ White River. Bids are due Aug. 13.

The Corps’ Little Rock District requested information in February on firms able to perform the work.

The Southwestern Power Administration previously called for bids by Feb. 21 to replace protective relay and control switchboard panels at Bull Shoals and 90-MW Norfork Dam on the North Fork River. SWPA solicited information in November on a proposal to change the type of cabling used in Bull Shoals powerhouse.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps now seeks bids to refurbish and paint gates at Bull Shoals. Work is to include blast cleaning and painting of gates, refurbishing of side seals, replacing flexible grease lines, providing bird protection and providing rigid grease piping from a catwalk to flexible grease lines on the tainter gates. Other work includes miscellaneous structural repairs and lead-based paint abatement.

The work is valued at more than $10 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W9127S14R0008 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
