U.S. seeks fixed cone valve for West Virginia’s Summersville Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to supply a fixed cone valve to Summersville Dam on the Gauley River in West Virginia. Bids are due June 3.

The second tallest dam east of the Mississippi River, Summersville was completed by the Corps in 1966 for flood control recreation and flow augmentation. Though operated by the Corps, it is the site of the 80-MW Summersville hydroelectric project (No. 10813), licensed to the city of Summersville, W.Va., by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps’ Huntington District seeks bids to fabricate, assemble, test and deliver a 106.75-inch-diameter fixed cone valve, electric operator and appurtenant items. The stainless steel valve body is to consist of a cylinder, a fixed internal deflector cone on the downstream end, internal radial vanes and an upstream flange for attachment to a flanged pipe spool piece.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W9123714R0011 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due June 3. For information, contact Ginny M. Morgan, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntington District, Attn.: CELRH-CT, 502 8th St., Huntington, WV 25701-2070; (1) 304-399-5963; E-mail: ginny.m.morgan@usace.army.mil.
