The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to supply hydro governors, switchgear, and voltage regulators for the 14-MW Philpott hydroelectric project in Virginia. Responses are due June 13.

The Corps’ Wilmington District took bids in 2011 for replacement sump pumps at Philpott. Philpott Dam was completed in 1952 on the Smith River to control flooding, generate electricity, and provide recreation. It has two Francis turbines of 6.7 MW each and a 600-kW unit.

The Wilmington District now seeks information on firms able to perform the work to help it determine how to issue a solicitation.

Work is to include removal, upgrade, manufacturing, delivery, and installation of switchgear, a transformer, governor controls, and automatic voltage regulators.
