U.S. seeks wiring replacement at Nebraska’s Harlan County Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers again seeks bids to replace electrical wiring at Harlan County Dam in Nebraska, this time opening bidding to all firms. Bids are due Aug. 26.

The Corps’ Kansas City District previously called for bids for the work in June in a solicitation set aside for small businesses. It also took bids in June to repair tainter gates at the project.

Harlan County Dam is a rolled-earth embankment and concrete gravity dam built for flood control and irrigation on the Republican River in the 1950s. The dam, which impounds the second largest lake in Nebraska, includes a controlled spillway regulated by 18 tainter gates, nine sluice gates, and two irrigation outlets.

The Corps took bids in 2013 to fabricate and install stoplogs for spillway repair work to rehabilitate spillway gates at the project. The agency held an industry day last year in Kansas City to improve industry’s understanding of the Corps’ requirements and answer questions about the tainter gate repair project.

In an unrestricted solicitation, the Corps now seeks bids to provide electrical construction services to replace the operating gallery and south access stairwell electrical system. The work is expected to cost less than $100,000.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DQ14R1074 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box. Bids are due Aug. 26.
