The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $1,173,780 contract to Fuel Tank Maintenance Co. of Cookeville, TN, to recoat the Cordell Hull Dam.

The company’s proposal was accepted over that of lower bidder South Gulf, Inc., of Bonifay, FL, which had proposed a $729,285 plan. Two other bids, ranging up to $2,247,955, were also submitted.

 Cordell Hull Dam

 US Army Corps of Engineers

The dam’s five tainter gates can discharge 175,000 cubic feet of water per second.

The project involves cleaning, surface preparation and recoating of five 41-foot-high, 45-foot-wide steel tainter gates at the dam, located at river mile 313.50 on the Cumberland River in Carthage, TN.

The dam, completed in 1973, is 93 feet tall and 1306 feet wide. Its five tainter gates can discharge 175,000 cubic feet of water per second.

Scope of Work

The gates will be abrasive blast-cleaned to SSPC-SP 5 (white metal) and recoated with an epoxy-urethane system. SSPC-QP 1 certification is required.

The existing coatings contain low levels of lead; containment will be required.

The contractor will also be responsible for removing and disposing of all wood, tires, buoys or other debris collected on the gates.

About the Project

The Cordell Hull project is comprised of a navigation lock, a powerhouse, an embankment and a spillway section. The spillway section consists of the tainter gates mounted on concrete spillway piers and operated by an overhead gantry crane.
 
All of the work will be field performed, with water load removed from the gate. However, the project includes only enough bulkheads to dewater one gate at a time.

Because the dam area is closed to the public, the contractor must follow specified security measures.

About the Contractor

Founded in 1984 as a service company specializing in the cleaning, coating and repair of fuel tanks, Fuel Tank Maintenance has evolved into a general contractor and construction management company, performing a diverse range of construction services for government, commercial, and industrial clients worldwide.
