U.S. seeks firms to replace stoplogs at 2.2-MW Lewiston Dam hydro project

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of replacing stoplogs at the 2.2-MW Lewiston Dam hydroelectric project on the Trinity River in California. Responses are due Feb. 14.

The Lewiston project is part of the Trinity River Division of the Central Valley Project. Reclamation currently seeks information on firms capable of refurbishing intake gate mechanical equipment and a gate shaft at the 140-MW Trinity hydroelectric project also on the Trinity River.

Hydro operator Trinity Public Utilities District awarded a contract to JHP & Associates Inc. in 2011 to design and supply a complete upgrade of the Lewiston hydro plant, increasing installed capacity to 2.2 MW from 350 kW.

In a sources sought notice, Reclamation now seeks information on firms capable of replacing concrete filler blocks in the Lewiston Dam spillway structure and furnishing and installing six new stoplogs, including testing, removal and transporting to onsite storage. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.

Responses to the notice are to help Reclamation determine whether to restrict procurement to small businesses.

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R14PS00111 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by Feb. 14. For information, contact Erik Danger, Bureau of Reclamation – MP – Regional Office, Division of Acquisition Services, 2800 Cottage Way, Room E-1815, Sacramento, CA 95825-1898; (1) 916-978-5018; E-mail: edanger@usbr.gov.
