U.S. seeks wire rope replacement on control gates at 663-MW Shasta

SACRAMENTO, Calif., U.S. 5/15/12 (PennWell) — The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids for replacement of wire rope on control gates of the temperature control device at 663-MW Shasta Dam. Bids are due June 12.

The agency solicited information in February on firms capable of performing the work. It recently overhauled the five-unit Shasta power plant on California’s Sacramento River. The agency sought firms in April that could improve the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system at the power plant.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, Reclamation now seeks replacement of: 68 corroded wire ropes used to raise and lower the control gates, sockets that connect new wire ropes to equalizing beams, and wire rope slings that connect equalizing beams to gates. It also seeks touch-up painting of hoist drums and sheaves, drum covers, and sheave covers as well as preparation of surfaces and spot repairs on the epoxy coating system of the equalizing beams.

The work is expected to cost between $1 million and $5 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R12PS20077 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
