U.S. seeks firms to replace switchgear at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms able to replace 480-volt switchgear at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam in Arizona and Nevada. Responses are due Jan. 28.

Reclamation recently said it also plans to seek bids for unit circuit breakers and associated equipment for Hoover. It awarded a contract in October to Magnetek Inc. and Precision Crane & Hoist Services to modernize four 300-ton power plant cranes at Hoover. It took bids in 2013 to repair, remanufacture, or replace mechanical components needed to refurbish hydroelectric equipment at Hoover.

In a sources sought notice, Reclamation now seeks information on firms able to remove 480-volt switchgear at Hoover and to install replacement equipment. Responses are to be used to determine a procurement strategy.

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

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R15PS00219 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due before noon, Eastern time, Jan. 28 by e-mail to the address below. For information, contact Greg Hauburger, Bureau of Reclamation, Lower Colorado Region, LC-10303, 500 Fir St., Boulder City, NV 89005; (1) 702-293-8581; E-mail: ghauburger@usbr.gov.
