U.S. to seek trashracks for 320-MW Fort Randall, 132.3-MW Gavins Point

OMAHA, Neb., U.S. 4/25/12 (PennWell) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to fabricate trashracks for 320-MW Fort Randall Dam and 132.3-MW Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River in South Dakota and Nebraska. Responses are due May 4.

The Corps’ Omaha District announced in April that it anticipates tendering for a large volume of contracts to repair damage from 2011 flooding in the Missouri River Basin, including work affecting Fort Randall, Gavins, and four other major Corps hydroelectric projects.

The Corps currently seeks information on firms, including small businesses, capable of fabricating trashracks for both dams. The information is to be used to develop a solicitation for the work, which is expected to be issued in June with bids due in July.

Work is to include fabrication of trashracks of up to 19 by 15 by 3 feet. They are to be built of structural carbon steel per original drawings with modifications. The work is expected to require 180 days.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W912HY12S0019 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by 2 p.m., Central time, preferably by e-mail, but also by mail or fax to Sara Jackets, Contracting, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1616 Capitol Ave., Omaha, NE 68102-4901; (1) 402-995-2424; Fax: (1) 402-766-6306; E-mail: sara.l.jackets@usace.army.mil.
