U.S. seeks refurbishment of cooling water systems at 140-MW Trinity hydro project

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to rebuild the cooling water strainers used in the generator and bearing cooling water systems at the 140-MW Trinity hydroelectric project on the Trinity River in California. Bids are due July 14.

Reclamation requested information in February on firms capable of refurbishing intake gate mechanical equipment and a gate shaft at Trinity. It also took bids last year from small businesses for inspection of a bridge crane at the project. It awarded a contract in 2012 to Alstom Power Inc. for replacement of turbine runners and to overhaul units at the Trinity powerhouse.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, Reclamation now seeks bids to rebuild the cooling water strainers. Each unit has one generator cooling water strainer and one bearing cooling water strainer. The work is to be done over a two-year period when Reclamation performs turbine runner replacements on both hydro units.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R14PS00627 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due July 14. For information, contact Sataporn J. Palachat, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation – MP – Regional Office, 2800 Cottage Way, Room E-1815, Sacramento, CA 95825; (1) 916-978-5512; E-mail: spalachat@usbr.gov.
