This publication serves as notice of intent to procure supplies for the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, on a sole source basis, with: Raigatta Energy Inc., PO BOX 17, RR1, Bayfield Ontario, Canada, N0M 1G0. The required equipment for this contract consist of the following: One (1) Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) WS-0, 30B. Under authority of FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(ii), the value of the contract is expected to be under $10,000.00.

The Vertical Axis Wind Turbine electrical generator shall be designed for charging batteries of 12 volts DC nominal, with a charging voltage of approximately 15 volts. The construction shall be proven for harsh environments with a design lifespan of 50 years. Shall have fiberglass double-helix wind vanes, and be guaranteed to withstand constant wind speeds of 89 miles per hour (MPH), equivalent to 40 meters per second (m/s), or more. Shall come complete with turbine and generator joined together, and 12 volt DC controller. Shall have a cut-in wind speed of 2.8 m/s, a rated wind speed of 15 m/s, and no cut out wind speed. The total weight shall be approximately 102 pounds, or less. Shall have a permanent magnet generator, and be constructed without gears. The main brake system shall be electronic. Shall have an overall height of approximately 54.33 inches, and an overall vane width of approximately 13.385 inches. The measured height of the vanes shall be approximately 40.5 inches, with a swept area of approximately 3.3 square feet, or 0.30 square meters. The published data shall show a measured sound emission of zero (0) decibels at a distance of 7 feet from the vanes. Shall be a Windside model WS-0,30B.

Market research conducted concludes the WS-0, 30B wind turbine is designed to work in the harsh environment of Dumpling Mountain. All other brands and models are significantly larger, and/or lack the robust construction and silent operation of the Windside WS-0,30B. The unit must be compact for the project. It must be a VAWT to avoid conflict with the bird population and must run silently. Windside brand turbines enjoy a reputation of being a high quality, well made and durable product, used with success by the USGS in remote sites, including Adak, AK, and in Antarctica. The only distributor in North America is Raigatta Energy Inc., of Bayfield, Ontario, Canada, current in the Contractor Central Registry.

This Notice of Intent is not a request for Expressions of Interest (EOIs), proposals or quotations. No solicitation document exists and no telephone inquiries will be accepted. No contract award will be made on the basis of EOIs, proposals or quotations received in response to this notice. This supply will be procured under Firm Fixed Price Supply in accordance with FAR 12 procedures and Other Than Full and Open Competition as authorized under FAR 6.302-1. The anticipated award date is September 16, 2011. Point of contact for this acquisition is Mr. Deryl Morse at 907/644-3313 or email:
