Contractors are being sought by Owensboro Municipal Utilities for mechanical modifications and recoating of a 1 million-gallon water storage tank in Owensboro, KY; bids are due Feb. 23.

Installation of handrails, improvements on the interior ladder, and replacement of the existing roof vent are included in the job requirements. The project also specifies installation of a passive cathodic protection system.

Exterior and dry base interior surfaces will require surface preparation to SSPC-SP 3 power tool standards of all rusted areas. Contractors will then apply a spot coat of zinc-rich primer to all bare metal surfaces followed by an intermediate and finish coat. Lettering will require at least one full finish coating using a roller application.

All piping, ladders, and walkways are to be prepped, spot primed and coated. Piping and dry interior ladders and walkways will be hand-tool cleaned to SSPC-SP 2 before application of a spot coat zinc-rich primer, intermediate and finish coating.

Wet interior surfaces will receive abrasive blast-cleaning to near-white conditions (SSPC-SP 10). Contractors will then brush blast all remaining areas. A self-priming epoxy liner will then be applied followed by disinfection processes.
