U.S. seeks information on trashrack replacement at 120-MW Parker

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information from potential suppliers about proposed replacement or repair of trashracks at 120-MW Parker Dam on the Colorado River. Responses are due Oct. 15.

Reclamation took bids in July for replacement turbine seal rings at Parker and the 2,078.8-MW Hoover and 255-MW Davis hydroelectric projects. The agency has been performing modernization work for several years at Hoover in Arizona and Nevada, Davis in Arizona, and Parker in California.

Reclamation issued a request for information that eventually could result in a solicitation for trashrack work at Parker. The existing structure includes 12 bays with two columns of trashracks per bay. The top 24 trashracks and their center metal bar support guides have corroded.

Interested parties are invited to provide information on their capability to work on the project. Information can include repair and replacement recommendations, cost estimates, the fabrication process, and further suggestions and recommendations.

A site visit is scheduled for 10 a.m. Oct 5. Those interested in attending should notify Shawn Smith by e-mail at the address below.

A request for information notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. 10027LC in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due Oct. 15 to the address below. For information, contact Shawn Smith, Procurement Technician, Denise L. Colwell, Contracting Officer, Bureau of Reclamation, – LC – Lower Colorado Regional Office, P.O. Box 61470 Boulder City, NV 89006; (1) 702-293-8097; E-mail: ssmith@usbr.gov, dcolwell@usbr.gov.
