Firms sought by U.S. to replace runners at 140-MW Trinity

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information from small businesses capable of replacing turbine runners and overhauling units at the 140-MW Trinity hydroelectric project on the Trinity River in California. Responses are due Aug. 30.

Reclamation previously said it plans to seek bids to replace station service switchgear at Trinity, while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to seek bids to install an innovative corrosion control system at the Reclamation project.

Reclamation now has issued a sources sought notice to determine whether there are firms classified as 8(a) Small Business, HUBZone Small Business, or Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business concerns that are able and interested in performing the work. Based on response, the agency might set aside the turbine runner work for such firms.

Work is to include fabrication and testing of a hydraulic turbine model; furnishing two stainless steel vertical Francis turbine runners for Trinity Units 1 and 2, nose cones, and appurtenant components; furnishing coupling bolts, wear rings, wicket gates, shaft sleeve, and other parts.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. R12SY20001 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses are due by 10 a.m., Pacific time, Aug. 30. For information, contact Rosana Yousef Goarji, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation - MP - Regional Office, 2800 Cottage Way, Room E-1815, Sacramento, CA 95825; (1) 916-978-5004; E-mail: ryousefgoarji@usbr.gov.
