Request for Proposals for Water-to-Wire Hydropower Redevelopment Package for the Byllesby Dam Upgrade Project
Dakota County is seeking proposals to obtain bids for pre-construction phase construction management services, and final construction related services for the Byllesby Dam Water-to-Wire Hydropower Redevelopment Project.
Dakota County is working to complete a second redevelopment project of the power generation facilities at the Byllesby Dam. The County hired Ayres Associates / Hatch / Spaulding Consultants to complete a power production assessment and preliminary design of the civil components to obtain an amendment to the FERC license exemption. The County expects the consultants will oversee final design and construction for civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering aspects of the project. The County received $6 million in state funding in 2017. The County plans to self-finance the rest of the project costs.
In early 2018, the County selected Voith to provide new turbines, generators and other equipment — knowing that this equipment has a 12- to 24-month lead time for delivery.
The civil works for accommodating this equipment haven’t been finalized, and the County is seeking a hydropower developer from this RFP to complete the project through final design and construction. Construction is expected to start in early 2019 and end in 2021.
