U.S. seeks wiring replacement, tainter gate repairs at Nebraska’s Harlan County Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to replace electrical wiring and to repair tainter gates at Harlan County Dam in Nebraska. Bids in two solicitations are due June 10 and 19.

The Corps plans rehabilitation of two to three spillway tainter gates at Harlan County Dam, 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. It also sought information on firms able to perform two separate tasks, one to provide a spillway dewatering structure for the spillway tainter gate work, including 16 new stoplogs, and the other to strengthen structural steel components of the 40- by 30-foot gates and to replace existing trunnions, bearings, and gate chains.

In a solicitation set-aside for small businesses, the Corps’ Kansas City District now seeks bids by June 10 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. W912DQ14R1048 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box. Bids are due June 10.
