U.S. seeks bids for trash rake system for 120-MW Parker

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to supply a trash rake cleaning system for trashracks at 120-MW Parker Dam on the Colorado River. Bids are due Sept. 2.

The agency previously expected to take bids in June. It took information in November 2010 from potential suppliers about proposed acquisition of a trash rake cleaning system for Parker. The bureau has been performing modernization work for several years at 2,078-MW Hoover Dam in Arizona and Nevada, 255-MW Davis Dam in Arizona, and Parker in California.

Reclamation now seeks bids from small businesses to design, manufacture, and install a trashrack cleaner. The existing structure, which has no trash rakes, includes 12 bays with two columns of trashracks per bay. Reclamation seeks a trash rake system for the forebay inlet structure that would remove accumulated quagga mussels and aquatic plants, alleviate low flow velocities, and retrieve collected debris.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R11PS30300 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Sept. 2. For information, contact Beth A. Murray, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation - LC - Lower Colorado Regional Office, P.O. Box 61470 Boulder City, NV 89006; (1) 702-293-8581; E-mail: bmurray@usbr.gov.
