U.S. seeks firms to supply weir hoists at 810-MW Little Goose

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms capable of supplying two 15,000-pound weir hoists for 810-MW Little Goose Dam, on the Snake River in Washington. Responses are due Nov. 23.

The Corps awarded a $4.93 million contract in March to COH Inc. for gantry crane work at Little Goose.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District now has issued a sources sought notice seeking information on small and large firms capable of supply Little Goose North Shore Entrance 1 and 2 weir hoists. The weirs are used to maintain a head differential between the project’s fish ladder and the river. Existing hoists have failed, been removed from operation, and replaced by temporary A-frame chain fall hoist systems.

Remains of the original hoists are to be removed and new hoists fabricated, delivered, installed, and tested for working capacity of 15,000 pounds. Work is to include replacing water level sensors and limit switches, installing controls and integrating them with the existing control system. The work is expected to require nine months, with on-site work during January-February 2014.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912EF13RSS04 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by 4 p.m., Pacific time, Nov. 23. For information, contact Phylliss Buerstatte, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, Attn.: CENWW-CT, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7211; E-mail: phyllis.l.buerstatte@usace.army.mil.
