U.S. to seek bids for trash rake system for 120-MW Parker

The Bureau of Reclamation plans to seek bids to supply a trash rake cleaning system for trashracks at 120-MW Parker Dam on the Colorado River. The agency said it expects to issue a request for proposals about May 27, with responses to be due 30 days later.

Reclamation took information in November 2010 from potential suppliers about proposed acquisition of a trash rake cleaning system for Parker. The bureau has been performing modernization work for several years at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam in Arizona and Nevada, 255-MW Davis Dam in Arizona, and Parker in California.

Reclamation now plans to seek bids from small businesses to design, manufacture, and install a trash rack cleaner. The existing structure, which has no trash rakes, includes 12 bays with two columns of trashracks per bay. Reclamation seeks a trash rake system for the forebay inlet structure that would remove accumulated quagga mussels and aquatic plants, alleviate low flow velocities, and retrieve collected debris.

A pre-solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R11PS30300 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
