Unico Mechanical has announced it is to work on the rehabilitation, fabrication and repair of components at Hoover Dam after being named one of four companies to be awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by the US Bureau of Reclamation (USBR).
Unico was awarded the first task order contract that will involve work on the components at the Dam.
“We’re honored to have been selected by the BOR for the first task order and have the opportunity to work on such a historic hydropower plant as the Hoover Dam,” said Randy Potter, President and CEO of Unico Mechanical. “We’re one of the few companies in the western region that has the full-service capabilities for both shop and field machine repair work, as well as the engineering expertise, to take on a job of this size. With 40 years of experience in repairing and overhauling hydropower equipment, which includes previous work for USBR, we’re excited to take on large-scale, complex projects like the Hoover Dam.”
Initial work will involve field repair, while future work will likely tap Unico’s extensive in-house machine shop capabilities for fabrication, welding and various machining requirements.
