The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to supply replacement hoists on the north shore fishway entrance at 810-MW Little Goose Dam, on the Snake River in Washington. A site visit is scheduled April 10, with bids due April 26.
The Corps’ Walla Walla District sought information in November on firms capable of supplying Little Goose North Shore Entrance 1 and 2 weir hoists. The Corps awarded a $4.93 million contract in 2012 to COH Inc. for gantry crane work at Little Goose.
The Walla Walla District now seeks bids to remove and replace two hoists for the fishway entrance weirs. The weirs are used to maintain a head differential between the project’s fish ladder and the river. Existing hoists have failed, been removed from operation, and replaced by temporary A-frame chain fall hoist systems.
Remains of the original hoists are to be removed and new hoists fabricated, delivered, installed, and tested for working capacity of 15,000 pounds. Work is to include replacing water level sensors and limit switches, installing controls and integrating them with the existing control system. Valued at $500,000 to $1 million, the work is expected to require nine months, with on-site work in January 2014.
