U.S. seeks firms for fire suppression systems at 2,620-MW Chief Joseph Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to supply fire suppression systems at 2,620-MW Chief Joseph Dam on the Columbia River in Washington. Responses are due May 30.

The Corps’ Seattle District sought information in April on firms able to perform spillway gate lifecycle maintenance and took bids to supply turbine packing box lantern rings for Chief Joseph. It awarded a contract to Holt Services Inc. to perform drilling to replace inclinometers monitoring a “massive landslide” on the project’s left bank.

In a sources sought notice, the Seattle District now seeks information on firms with the capability to modernize or replace fire suppression systems for 29 generators that are protected by eight high-pressure carbon dioxide systems containing a total of 262 75-pound CO2 bottles. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.

Responses to the notice are to help the Corps determine the type of solicitation to be issued.

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W68MD941354404 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by May 30 by e-mail to the address below. For information, contact Jenny J. Scroggins, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, Attn.: CENWS-CT, P.O. Box 3755, Seattle, WA 98124-3755; (1) 206-764-6696; E-mail: jennifer.j.scroggins@usace.army.mil.
