A market survey is being conducted to determine if there are a reasonable number of interested small business concerns to set this future project aside for them. If your firm is a Small Business, certified HUBZone, 8A, Woman-Owned Small Business or Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned Small Business and you are interested in this project please respond appropriately. The proposed project is a design build requirement. Provide a complete and usable generation plant capable of operation in both continuous (peak shaving) and standby (islanded) modes in accordance with UFC 3-540-01. The 12,470 volt, 3-phase, 4-wire generation plant shall consist of containerized packaged generators with a combined minimum output capacity of six mega-watts, fueled by a natural gas pipeline. The generators shall be rated to satisfy the 'continuous Power' (peak shaving) and 'Limited Time Running' and 'Emergency Standby Power'(islanded) characteristics prescribed by both UFC 3-540-01 and the Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA) 101P for DOD facilities, as applicable. The generators shall have capability and functionality to operate in both continuous (peak shaving) and standby (islanded) modes. Continuous (peak shaving) mode requires that the generator set be able to provide power to a non-varying load for an unlimited number of hours per year. The average power output of the generator set should be 70 -100% of the rating but shall be capable of providing 100% of the rating for 100% of the operating hours. Standby (islanded) mode requires that the generator set be capable of running at an average varying load of up to 70% of the nameplate rating for up to 500 hours per year. The gensets shall be capable of meeting the Army's intent for resiliency in islanded mode, which is a sustained operation per Army Directive 2017-7 for 14 consecutive days, 24 hours per day (368 hours of continuous operations). In standby mode operation, the generators shall be capable of starting and shedding block loads up to 1.1 MW in a single step under the worst-case conditions expected at the site. Transient performance must meet ISO 8528-5:2018 requirements for G3 class with a 1.07 MW block load and each additional load up to 100% of the generator rating. The generator controls shall have remote start, stop, and emergency shutoff capabilities. The generator control system shall be digital and equipped with Ethernet communication ports supporting DNP 3.0 protocols for interfacing with Government Privatized Electrical partner, City Light and Power (CLP) SCADA and control systems. Provide provisions for termination of the fiber optic cable that CLP will provide from the existing CAAF substation to the paralleling switchgear controls. Coordinate fiber connector type with CLP. Contract duration is estimated at 270 calendar days. The estimated cost range is between $10,000,000 and $25,000,000. NAICS code is 237990. All interested Small Businesses, certified HUBZONE, 8A, Woman-Owned Small Businesses or Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned Small Business contractors should respond to this survey by email on 6/25/2021 by 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Documentation from the firms bonding company showing current single and aggregate performance and payment bond limits. 4. Descriptions of Experience Interested construction firms must provide no more than three (3) example projects with either greater than 95 percent completion or projects completed in the past five (5) years where the interested firm served as the prime contractor. Each project must include the name, title, project role, e-mail address, and telephone number of at least one reference. References may be used to verify project size, scope, dollar value, percentages and quality of performance. Example projects must be of similar size and scope. a. Projects similar in scope to this project include: New construction of Generation of Electricity Plants and Electricity Generation Technologies which includes coordination with utility power. b. Projects similar in size to this project include: Generation Plants of at least 2 MW. c. Based on the information above, for each project submitted, includ Current percentage of construction complete and the date when it was or will be completed. Scope of the project. Size of the project. The percentage of work that was self-performed as project and/or construction management services or physical construction type work. 5. Small Businesses are reminded under FAR 52.219-14, Limitations on Subcontracting; they must perform at least 15% of the cost of the contract, not including the cost of materials, with the firms own employees for general construction-type procurement. Include the percentage of work that will be self-performed on this project, and how it will be accomplished. NOTE: Total submittal package shall be no longer than 8 pages.
