U.S. extends guide bearing bidding for 810-MW Lower Granite, 402-MW Dworshak

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to rehabilitate turbine guide bearings at 810-MW Lower Granite and 402-MW Dworshak hydroelectric projects. Bids now are due Dec. 31.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District previously called for bids by Dec. 14. Lower Granite is on the Snake River in Washington and Dworshak is on the North Fork Clearwater River in Idaho.

The Corps seeks a contractor to inspect and refurbish two separate turbine guide bearings at Lower Granite and Dworshak, with an option to perform similar work on another guide bearing at Lower Granite.
