Measurement, Design, Fabrication and Installation of Steel Stop Logs on Northwind Lake Dam Intake Gates

This Request for Tenders is issued by Her Majesty the Queen in right of Ontario, as
represented by the Minister of Natural Resources (the “Ministry” or “MNR”).
The Ministry invites tenders for the provision of measurement, design, fabrication and installation of steel stop logs on Northwind Lake Dam intake gates.

The dam is located approximately 500 km north of Red Lake, Ontario at the outlet
of Northwind Lake on the Flanagan Duck River.

Dam Description:

The dam is a concrete structure approximately 5 m (16.4’) high and 29 m (95’) long. The deck contains no operating equipment for removing gates and stop logs. There are three 4.28 m (14’) spillway bays and three 2.4 m (8’) intake gates.

The intake gates all have a 2.4 m x 2.4 m (8’x8’) opening size, each contain double gains. The gains are 280mm (11”) wide. One set of gains contain 250 mm x 300 mm timber stop logs extending the full height of the gain slots. All dimensions are approximate and will have to be confirmed by measurement. Currently, there is no equipment available on site to manipulate the existing stop logs.

There are no handrails or other fall restraint system located on the concrete dam deck, nor are there gain covers on the spillway or intake gains.

Scope of Work:

The successful bidder will be responsible for measuring, designing, fabricating and
installing steel stop logs, for three intake gates to seal the existing penstocks.
The new steel stop logs are to be installed to seal the intake gates and replace the existing timber stop logs. The successful bidder will have to verify all dimensions and determine the required stop log quantity for all three intake openings.

The successful bidder will be responsible for all costs associated with material, labour, transportation, design, fabrication and installation as further described in the RFT document.
