Project Description
The objective of the project is to increase reliability, redundancy and capacity of the electrical system at Southeast Water Pollution Control Plant (SEP) by upgrading the existing 12 kV primary feed from Hunters Point switchyard and obtaining a new 12 kV feed from Potrero switchyard to provide redundancy for SEP facilities. Contract work consists of constructing a new two-story building over the existing switching station to house the new primary switchgear. In addition, aging substations will be replaced and new power monitoring and control system will be installed for additional reliability and efficiency. The work is to be performed in San Francisco, California.

There will be no bid discounts for this contract. The LBE Subcontracting Participation Requirement is 10.00% and ONLY San Francisco (Local) Small & Micro-LBEs can be utilized to meet this requirement (Firms certified by SF Contract Monitoring Division). SFPUC-LBEs cannot be utilized to meet the 10.00% LBE Subcontracting Participation Requirement. The 10.00% LBE subcontracting participation requirement was established in consideration of the project involving medium-voltage (12 kilo-volt) electrical equipment for power distribution at SEP, a large industrial facility.
