The Key West (FL) Utility Board is inviting bids for cleaning and recoating six steel substation buildings at its electric utility, Keys Energy Services (KEYS).

The project involves work on four switchgear buildings of various sizes and two indoor capacitor bank buildings, all located in energized electric substations within 22 miles of Key West. No budget estimate for the project was disclosed.

All of the structures are located less than a mile from salt water with high humidity, high UV radiation and salt spray in a subtropical environment.

Steel supports will be coated with an organic zinc-rich primer and a coal-tar epoxy finish. Siding and roofing will be coated with a vinyl alkyd primer and a high-gloss silicone alkyd finish.

Bidders must have three years of experience painting inside electrical substations and must provide three letters of recommendation from such projects.

Bids will be opened Aug. 24.

About the Utility

KEYS is the public power utility for the Lower Florida Keys, providing electricity for more than 28,000 customers from Key West to the Seven-Mile Bridge at the southernmost point in the continental United States.

The City of Key West purchased the electric utility in 1943. In the late 1970s, the Utility Board studied alternative power supplies and decided to construct a transmission line (or TIELINE) to interconnect to the mainland power grid. On May 8, 1987, KEYS interconnected the TIELINE with the mainland power grid, and KEYS’ operations changed dramatically.

Today, KEYS imports nearly all of its power supply and uses local generation for emergency back-up only. The utility relies on power from the mainland because it is far less expensive than local generation.
