U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Seattle District, requires the replacement of the Hiram M. Chittenden Lock's large lock Stoney Gate valve system. The work consists of:
1.Gate Valve Replacement: The Stoney gate valve system consists of six gate valves that control the filling and emptying of the Lake Washington Ship Canal large lock chambers. The valves are located in 14 feet tall by 8-1/2 feet wide culverts. The culverts and associated valves are accessible only when the large lock chambers are dewatered by the Government. The scope encompasses demolition, removal, and replacement of the existing Stoney gate valves, valve guides, valve bases, machinery and incidentals related to work. This work is to be spread over four separate dewatering events.
2.Control Panel Replacement: The existing control panel is a partially programmable logic controller (PLC) based with additional hardwired controls and indicators. The PLC system primarily handles miter gate operation, and is vulnerable to disruption in the system (i.e. lightning strikes). The scope encompasses demolition, removal, and replacement of the Chittenden control panel, extension of fiber optic cabling, and incidentals related to work. The new system will utilize a master PLC and six Remote I/O Panels (RIOPS) each located in a miter gate machinery recess. RIOPS will provide localized control of the associated Stoney gate valve, and will additionally provide localized control of miter gate operations. The master/RIOP system will utilize a fiber optic ring network. Existing fiber optic cables will be incorporated into the new system and augmented with additional fiber optic cabling
The magnitude of construction is estimated to be between $10,000,000 and $25,000,000. The resulting contract will be firm-fixed-price.
