OUC seeks contractor to build pump system at Stanton Energy Center

Orlando Utilities Commission is seeking a contractor to build a decant cell pump system at its Stanton Energy Center, according to a Request for Proposals (RFP) published on Tuesday.

The Curtis H. Stanton Energy Center is a power plant owned by OUC, about 13 miles southeast of Downtown Orlando, which began operating in 1987.


OUC's contract would be for a supplier and contractor to build the system, which is a turbine pump pad and support structure on the north side of the landfill detention pond, and on the south side of the power plant's landfill.

The work would include all permits, labor, materials, equipment and incidentals.


Cost of the project will be determined by the winning bid chosen. GHD Services, Inc., out of Tampa has been civil engineer on the project over the past year.

The RFP winner must have at minimum a Florida general contractor's license, HDPE welding certification, and been in business at least 10 years performing this type of work.

A pre-proposal conference will be held April 28, at 9 a.m. at the Stanton Energy Center on S. Alafaya Trail, with followup questions due by May 3.

Bids are due on May 12, at 2 p.m. Full documents for RFP no. 17-4347-OQ can be sourced through OUC's Procurement Division.
