Request for Proposals - Snorkel Fabrication Project

The Santa Cruz Port District owns and operates a barge mounted, 16” (inside diameter) suction (snorkel) dredge, which utilizes a suction head assisted by water jets to turn sediment into a slurry that can be pumped.  The District’s current suction head was fabricated circa 1986, and has reached the end of its useful service life. The Port District is seeking bid proposals from qualified contractors to replicate the design of the District’s current suction head to fabricate a new 16” marine-grade jet and suction snorkel for customized attachment to existing mounts on Twin Lakes. Proposals will be received at the Santa Cruz Harbor office until 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 30, 2018.  Responses may be hand delivered, mailed, or delivered via courier service to the address below. Proposals received after the due date and time will not be considered. Faxed or emailed responses will not be accepted.
