U.S. takes bids for fire safety system at 1,780-MW Dalles Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids for construction of a fire safety system at 1,780-MW Dalles Dam on the Columbia River. Bids are due June 25.

The Corps’ Portland District took bids in 2012 for maintenance and rehabilitation work on elevators at The Dalles. It also awarded a contract to Normandeau Associates Inc. to perform fish counting services at The Dalles and seven other federal hydropower projects on the Columbia and Snake rivers.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Portland District now seeks bids to provide a pressurized control room and emergency egress route, fire detection, and alarm panel installation for The Dalles. The Portland District learned to review powerhouse protective schemes after a 2007 fire at the 110-MW Detroit hydroelectric project in Oregon.

A solicitation notice for The Dalles work may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9127N13R0008 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due June 25. For information, contact Jeffrey Renner, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division (CECT-NWP), P.O. Box 2946, Portland, OR 97208-2946; (1) 503-808-4630; E-mail: jeff.s.renner@usace.army.mil.
