U.S. seeks testing of station service, control system batteries at 132.3-MW Gavins Point Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to perform load testing of station service and power plant control system batteries at 132.3-MW Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River. Bids are due March 14.

The Corps’ Omaha District last year awarded a contract to Yellowstone Electric Co. to install generator step-up transformers and related equipment at Gavins Point. In 2012, it awarded a contract to Futurenet Group Inc. to replace tailrace erosion protection and it took bids to rehabilitate spillway gates at the project.

In a solicitation set aside for small business, the Corps now seeks bids to conduct battery capacity load tests of 60 station service batteries, type LCR-21 manufactured by C&D. It also seeks testing of 15 power plant control system batteries, type 4XTJ-9 manufactured by C&D.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9128F14QG010 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due March 14. For information, contact Monica Dwyer, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, 1616 Capital Ave., Omaha, NE 68102-4901; (1) 402-667-7873; E-mail: monica.e.dwyer@usace.army.mil.
