Bids will be accepted March 3 for abrasive-blast cleaning and shop-priming of more than 100,000 square feet of deck plates on generators at the Glen Canyon Dam in Page, AZ.

Glen Canyon Dam

National Park Service

Glen Canyon Dam is a vital

link in the Colorado River

Storage Project.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is overseeing the project, which involves work on four generators, each with 46 two-sided, 1,100-square-foot deck plates—184 plates in all. The plates are of various shapes and sizes. One side of each plate is flat; the other has 2” angle iron welded on for support.

The plates will be made available to the contractor for shop priming in two sets of 23 for each generator.  The second set will become available once the first group is returned primed and installed. The existing coatings may contain lead. The Bureau must approve the new primer.

The contractor will be expected to provide shipping both ways. This is a Total Small Business set-aside project.

Part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah and Arizona, the dam is a vital link in the Colorado River Storage Project, a series of dams and reservoirs along the Colorado River. These dams and their reservoirs work together to provide water, electricity, flood control, and recreation to millions of people.

Glen Canyon Dam, built between 1956 and 1966, stands 710 feet from bedrock and holds back 26,215,000 acre-feet of water, or 9 quadrillion gallons, when Lake Powell is full.

Reported by Paint BidTracker, a construction reporting service devoted to identifying contracting opportunities for the coatings community.

Did this bid actually get let today (03-03-11)?

What is a "Total Small Business" set aside project? Is that the same as an 8-A set aside business?

Bob: The bid date was extended. You can find the new date and additional information by signing up for a free trial of Paint BidTracker at http://www.paintsquare.com/bidtracker/. The 8(a) program is part of the small business program, but you'll have to check with the Small Business Administration (http://www.sba.gov/) for the specifics. And here's a link to a photo of the deck plates, in place at the dam: https://ideasec.nbc.gov/ows-cls/BR142501_196645/Deck%20Plates%20top%20of%20unit%20picutre%203.JPG.
