Haryana Power Generation Corporation Limited (HGCL) has invited global bids to set up an aggregate 57 MW of grid-connected, ground-mounted solar capacity at three sites in the state. Of the total capacity, 30 MW shall come up in Faridabad, and plants of 15 MW and 12 MW at two separate sites in Yamuna Nagar.
The plants—to be developed on ‘build-operate-transfer’ basis at lands available with HPGCL—shall be awarded through international competitive bidding with fixed tariff ceiling of Rs 3.30/KWh for 25 years.
To be eligible, the bidder should have carried out similar work for a single order of 5 MW capacity or two orders of 3 MW each or three orders of 2 MW each. Further, its average turnover for the last three consecutive financial years must be Rs 60 million only.
HPGCL will sign a 25-year power purchase agreement with successful bidders within 45 days of issuance of Letter of Intent.
The brief scope of work includes design, engineering, procurement, supply and construction of ground-mounted, grid-connected solar plants, with scheduled date of commissioning within 10 months from the date of letter of intent. The successful bidder shall also be responsible for the plant’s operation and maintenance for a period of 25 years.
Only solar modules and cells from Approved List of Models and Manufacturers by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy are allowed for the project. Further, the developer must ensure that all modules used in their plant are disposed of, after their end of life, as per the e-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2011 notified by the government of India.
