Centuria provides IT power for Energy hydroelectric project

Company will assist Western Area Power Administration, Rocky Mountain Region

Centuria Corp. will provide a wide range of information technology services to the Energy Department under a three-year contract valued at approximately $5 million.

The award calls for Centuria to assist Energy’s Western Area Power Administration, Rocky Mountain Region, with IT infrastructure, hardware and software support; database management; cybersecurity; customer support and training; and IT governance and management.

The project will support the marketing and delivery of reliable, cost-based hydroelectric power and related services within a 15-state region of the central and western United States, according to a Centuria announcement released today.

Western is one of four power marketing administrations within the Energy Department whose role is to market and transmit electricity from multiuse water projects.

The transmission system carries electricity from 57 power plants operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the International Boundary and Water Commission. Together, these plants have an installed capacity of 10,395 megawatts.

The Centuria team includes subcontractor Pacific Western Technologies.

The work will be performed in Loveland, Colo., beginning July 1.

In January, Centuria won a 10-year task order with a ceiling value of approximately $97 million from the National Weather Service to provide comprehensive life cycle support for the Next Generation Radar network, which is operated by the National Weather Service, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Air Force.

Centuria, of Dulles, Va., is a privately held, service-disabled veteran-owned small business.
