Engineering and manufacturing major Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has invited bids for supply, installation and commissioning of grid-connected solar rooftop PV plants of cumulative capacity 170 KWp at four locations in the state of Haryana. The plants are to be developed at Blue Jay Samalkha (20 KWp), Skylark Panipat (50 KWp), Parakeet Pipli (50 KWp) and Kingfisher Ambala (50 KWp).
Each individual project work must be completed by June 15 or within 30 days from the date of award of work, whichever is later.
The projects would be awarded through bidding followed by reverse auction.

BHEL will supply solar modules of 300 Wp or above for the projects—approximately 68 units for Blue Jay Samalkha, and 170 units for Skylark Panipat, Parakeet Pipli and Kingfisher Ambala each. Supply of all the remaining balance-of systems, including string inverters, falls under the developer’s scope.
The selected developer would also be responsible for storage, safe keeping, transportation, loading and unloading (including lifting and shifting) of BHEL supplied items (modules) at site.
