The National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) has invited bids for the installation and commissioning package of a solar PV project at Solapur in Maharashtra.

The scope of work includes the installation and commissioning of the solar PV project through the Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) route. The major components required for the project development will be supplied by the NTPC, including modules, inverters, power cables, breakers, transformers, and energy meters, which will be issued by NTPC to the instrumentation & control (I&C) contractor.

The last date for the submission of bids is June 03, 2020, and the pre-bid meeting will take place on May 20, 2020. Interested bidders will have to submit an amount of ₹2 million (~$26,166) as the earnest money deposit (EMD).

To take part in the bidding process, the bidder should have installed solar PV-based grid-connected power projects of cumulative installed capacity of at least 18 MW, out of which at least one project should have been of 5 MW or above.

The reference project should have been in successful operation for at least six months before the date of the techno-commercial bid opening. The bidder should have executed at least one electrical substation of 11 kV or above voltage level consisting of at least circuit breakers and cabling works of value not less than ₹90 million (~$1.17 million) in a single project.

Regarding the financial criteria, the average annual turnover of the bidder should not be less than ₹110 million (~$14.52 million) during the preceding three years. In case the bidder does not satisfy the annual turnover criteria on its own, its holding company will be required to meet the stipulated turnover requirements.

The net worth of the bidder as on the last day of the preceding financial year should not be less than 100% of the bidder’s paid-up share capital. In case the bidder does not satisfy the net worth criteria on its own, it can meet the requirements on the strength of its subsidiaries or holding companies.
