U.S. seeks firms to install governors at 11 Northwest hydro plants

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to install new digital governors at 11 Corps hydroelectric projects in the Portland, Seattle and Walla Walla districts. Responses are due June 19.

The government previously purchased American Governor retrofit kits to convert mechanical governors to digital governors. The Corps awarded American Governor Co. a contract in 2008 to design, manufacture, and deliver replacement digital governors for hydropower plants in the three districts. The Corps took bids in 2010 to install new digital governor equipment at its 21 hydroelectric projects in the Pacific Northwest. The agency took information in April on firms able to provide digital governor commissioning and training services at Corps hydro projects in the same region.

In a sources sought notice, the Portland District now seeks firms with the ability to install new government-furnished digital governor equipment. It plans a multiple award of five-year indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contracts for the work. The Corps plans to use responses from the notice to 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 the number W9127N15R0001 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 4 p.m., Pacific time, June 19. For information, contact Michael I. Grasso, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division, CECT-NWP, P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208-2946; (1) 503-808-4637; E-mail: michael.i.grasso@usace.army.mil.
