The Corps also plans to take bids for removal and replacement of the T6 transformer at Ice Harbor with a new 115-kilovolt three-phase transformer to be purchased under a separate contract.

The Walla Walla District said it expected to issue a solicitation for the work about Oct. 22, with bids to be due at least 30 days later.

In a set-aside for small business, the Corps plans to seek removal of the existing transformer and electrical components, plus installation of new transformer low-voltage, high-voltage, and high-voltage neutral connections, and other electrical and mechanical work. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.
