U.S. to seek draft tube, scroll case hoist systems at 603-MW Ice Harbor Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on small firms able to supply new draft tube and scroll case personnel hoist systems at the 603-MW Ice Harbor Dam hydroelectric project on the Snake River in Washington. Responses are due March 7.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District awarded a contract in 2012 to Koontz Electric Co. Inc. to remove and replace a transformer and electrical components at Ice Harbor. The Corps has contracted with Voith Hydro to design and supply two new fish-friendly turbines at the hydroelectric project.

The Corps now seeks information on small businesses with the capability to fabricate and supply the new draft tube and scroll case personnel hoist systems. The draft tube hoist frame is to be about 6 feet long and 2 feet wide. The scroll case hoist frame is up to 14 feet tall by 3 feet wide by 3 feet long. Fabrication is to be performed off site with work to be completed between December 2013 and June 2014.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912EF13R0022 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by 4:30 p.m., Pacific time, March 7. For information, contact Camilla Allen, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7213; E-mail: camilla.allen@usace.army.mil.
