OMAHA, Neb., U.S. 6/4/12 (PennWell) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids for gate hoist controllers and other rehabilitation work at the 320-MW Fort Randall hydroelectric project in South Dakota. Bids are due June 25.

The Corps is in the process of seeking several types of rehabilitation at Fort Randall. It announced in April that it anticipates tendering by its Omaha, Walla Walla, and Galveston districts for a large volume of contracts to repair damage from 2011 flooding in the Missouri River Basin, including work affecting Fort Randall and five other major Corps hydroelectric projects.

The Galveston District now seeks bids from small businesses: to replace eight gate hoist controllers in four flood tunnels with programmable logic controllers; to replace eight manually operated dampers with motorized dampers in the four flood control tower shaft ventilation system louvers; to repair concrete cracking and spalling at 18 intake structure curtain wall bearing support locations; and to replace upstream and downstream drain pipe extensions on 10 of the 12 intake structure towers.

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