July 8, 2021 City Council Regular Meeting
6. Authorize the City Manager to Execute a Contract for Dryer Belts and Parts to Huber Technology in the Amount of $90,287. Belts and Other Parts are Used to Move Sludge Through the Solid Handling Dryer at the President Street Plant, Reducing Volume by 90% and Allowing for Transport as Dried vs. Liquid Sludge to the Dean Forest Landfill.
Strategic Priority

Recommend approval to award a sole source contract for Huber Belt and Parts to Huber Technology in the amount of $90,287. 

This contract will be used to replace Huber brand belt and dryer parts for bio-solids handling equipment located at the President Street wastewater treatment plant. The dryer belt transports bio-solids throughout the length of the handling process as the bio-solids are being dried. When the bio-solids dryer is not operable due to repairs, the wet bio-solids must be hauled to the landfill. Hauling wet bio-solids is much more expensive than hauling dry bio-solids.

The Huber dryer belt lifespan is 5 to 7 years based on normal operating parameters. The Huber dryer belt and parts are manufactured in Germany. 

This is a sole source because Huber Technology is the manufacturer for the specialized parts. 

Delivery: As needed. Terms: Net 30 days.

S.S. Huber Technology (Huntersville, NC) (D)$90,287
