Solicitation Number: W912WJ-17-B-0005

Agency: Department of the Army

Office: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Location: USACE District, New England

Notice Type: Presolicitation

Added: Mar 07, 2017 2:16 pm
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District will be issuing an Invitation for Bids for maintenance dredging of two portions of the Federal Navigation Project (FNP) in the lower Kennebec River, Maine. This will be an unrestricted competitive requirement requiring a hydraulic hopper dredge to perform the work. The NAICS code for the work is 237990. The construction will extend over a 3-4 week period. The estimated construction cost is $1,000,000 to $5,000,000. Any responsible source meeting this standard may submit a bid to be considered by the New England District.

The work involves urgently needed dredging of two portions of the authorized, 27-foot deep, 500-foot wide FNP in the lower Kennebec River. The objective of this project is to provide safe passage of the PCU RAFAEL PERALTA, a US Navy Destroyer scheduled to depart the Bath Iron Works on or about April 27, 2017 on its way to join the Navy fleet. Dredging would restore the channel to its authorized dimensions and involves removal of a total of about 70,000 cubic yards (cy) of clean sand. Approximately 50,000 cy of material will be removed from the Doubling Point area (i.e. just below Bath) and approximately 20,000 cy of material will be removed from the Popham Beach area (at the river mouth). As part of this proposal, advance maintenance may be performed to remove the sand-waves in the vicinity of Doubling Point to a maximum elevation of -32' MLLW in an effort to improve the chance that adequate depths will endure. The 50,000 cy to be removed from the channel at Doubling Point includes approximately 35,000 cy of advance maintenance dredging. Material dredged from the Doubling Point area will be placed in the previously used in-river disposal area north of Bluff Head in about 95-100 feet of water. Material dredged from the Popham Beach area will be placed in the previously used 500-yard diameter nearshore disposal area located about 0.4 nautical miles south of Jackknife Ledge and in about 40-50 feet of water.

This is not an invitation for bids at this time. The solicitation requirements and contract documents to include instructions for submission and the response date will be available on or about March 17, 2017. Please note this solicitation will be UNRESTRICTED. Neither telephonic, mailed nor faxed requests for hard copies of this solicitation will be accepted. The solicitation will only be available online; in order to download the solicitation offerors must access the Federal Business Opportunities website (www.fbo.gov).
