The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to replace copper control and communications cables and equipment between the 94.5-MW Flatiron hydroelectric project, the Carter Lake shaft house and related facilities in Colorado. Bids are due April 24.

Reclamation awarded a contract in 2010 to Abhe & Svoboda Inc. to replace penstock coatings at Flatiron, which along with Carter Lake, is part of Reclamation’s Colorado-Big Thompson project.

Replacements are to be fiber-optic, programmable-logic-controller-based systems with modern control hardware. The work is valued at $250,000 to $500,000.
