U.S. seeks hydro generator condition monitoring equipment for 980-MW McNary

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to supply hydro generator condition monitoring equipment and software for 980-MW McNary Dam on the Columbia River. Bids are due June 25.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District took comments from contractors in May on its plan for up to 14 hydro turbine replacements at McNary. It also recently awarded a contract to Yanke Machine Shop to supply vertical barrier screen mesh panels for fish screens at the project.

The district now seeks bids to supply generator condition monitoring equipment and software for McNary. The agency had solicited information in 2011 on small firms capable of performing a condition monitoring assessment of a turbine-generator at McNary. However, the current solicitation is unrestricted.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912EF13Q0132 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by June 25. For information, contact Julie Morris, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. 3rd Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7220; E-mail: julie.m.morris@usace.army.mil.
