U.S. seeks firms to refurbish intake equipment, gate shaft at 140-MW Trinity hydro project

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of refurbishing intake gate mechanical equipment and a gate shaft at the 140-MW Trinity hydroelectric project on the Trinity River in California. Responses are due Feb. 14.

The Trinity project is part of the Trinity River Division of the Central Valley Project. Reclamation took bids last year from small businesses for inspection of a bridge crane at Trinity. It awarded a contract in 2012 to Alstom Power Inc. for replacement of turbine runners and to overhaul units at the Trinity powerhouse.

In a sources sought notice, Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of performing the refurbishment work. Responses are to help it determine whether to restrict the procurement to small businesses.

Work is to include heavy civil construction and installation of mechanical equipment in a valve chamber at the heart of the dam. It consists of: removal of calcium carbonate (calcite) from the valve chamber, portions of gate shaft and gate slots; installation of pipe supports for 24-inch air inlet and 20-inch floatwell pipes; and designing, furnishing, installing and testing an electro-osmotic pulse calcite mitigation system.

The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.
