U.S. seeks bids to install circuit breakers at Gavins Point

The Corps of Engineers is calling for proposals to install circuit breakers at 132.3-MW Gavins Point Dam in Nebraska and South Dakota. Proposals are due March 26.

The contractor is to perform turnkey replacement of eight 115-kV oil-filled circuit breakers with government-furnished SF6 power circuit breakers. The work site is a high-voltage switchyard for Gavins Point, on the Missouri River. The government estimates the cost of the project to be between $750,000 and $1 million.

The Corps issued a solicitation for essentially the same work in 2006 but made no award. (HNN 8/15/06) At that time, the Corps estimated the cost of the work would be between $250,000 and $500,000.

A synopsis of the new solicitation, No. W9128F-07-B-0005, is on the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov. The synopsis contains a link to the solicitation and technical data documents on the Federal Technical Data Solution (FedTeDS) Internet site, www.fedteds.gov. Registration is required to obtain documents from FedTeDS.

Proposals are due by 2 p.m. March 26 to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, Attn: Contracting Division (CENWO-CT), 106 S. 15th St., Omaha, NE 68012-1618. For information, contact Neil Herman, (1) 402-221-4119; E-mail: neil.f.herman@usace.army.mil.
