U.S. seeks gates replacement at 80-MW Denison Dam hydro project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to replace a flood gate and an emergency gate at the 80-MW Denison Dam hydroelectric project in Texas. Bids are due July 13.

The Corps’ Tulsa District requested information in April on firms able to perform the work.

The Corps last year awarded a contract to Alltech Engineering Corp. for design-build replacement of three flood gates and another contract to Voith Hydro to replace two turbine runners at Denison. It took bids in March for generator model validation testing at Denison and eight other Corps hydroelectric projects in Oklahoma and Texas.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Tulsa District now seeks bids to replace a flood gate and an emergency gate at Denison, which forms Texoma Lake on the Red River. The work is valued at $1.5 million to $2.5 million.

The solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912BV15R0040 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due by 2 p.m., Central time, July 13. For information, contact Debra A. Baker, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, CESWT-CT, 1645 S. 101st East Ave. Tulsa, OK 74128-4609; (1) 918-669-7278; E-mail: debra.a.baker@usace.army.mil.
