The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms capable of replacing electrical distribution equipment at 525-MW Libby Dam and powerhouse on the Kootenai River in Montana. Responses are due July 9.
The Corps’ Seattle District awarded a contract in 2013 to Warren Environmental Equipment Inc. to supply thrust bearing cooling coils for Libby’s Units 2 and 4. It also awarded a contract to Columbia Basin Environmental for dissolved gas and temperature monitoring at Libby and two other projects in the region. The Kootenai Tribe of Idaho currently is leading an assessment of wildlife losses and habitat impacts caused by Libby in order to develop a mitigation implementation plan.
In a sources sought notice, the district now seeks information on firms able to perform the Libby powerhouse electrical distribution and Libby Dam electrical distribution replacement projects. The work is valued at $5 million to $10 million.
The Corps plans to use responses to the notice to determine the type of solicitation to be issued for the work.
The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W68MD941505167 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
