Central Coalfields Limited—a subsidiary of Coal India Limited—has invited bids for development of 20 MW solar project at its plant in Piparwar of Jharkhand.
The project will be developed under the Open category, which means PV cells and modules can be procured from either domestic manufacturers or imported.
The project is estimated to cost Rs 803.10 million for 46.75 million units of maximum generation. Bidders are required a bank guarantee of Rs 5 million. Completion period is 270 days.
Scope of work
The brief scope of work includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading storage, installation, testing and commissioning of the solar plant.
The developer is also required to provide comprehensive operation and maintenance support for the plant, along with all electrical equipment, consumables and spare parts, for a period of five years from the date of successful completion of trial run.
The bidder should have carried out similar work for a cumulative grid-connected solar capacity of at least 16 MWp. Out of this capacity, at least one plant should have been of 10 MWp or higher capacity, and successfully operating for at least six months prior to the date of techno-commercial bid opening.
Else, the bidder should have executed in the last ten years a project worth Rs 73 crore—either as a developer or an EPC contractor—in any process industry. The project should have been in successful operation for at least one year prior to the date of techno-commercial bid opening.
Those who have executed at least one electrical sub-station of 33 kV or higher voltage level—either as a developer or EPC contractor—are also eligible to apply. The plant should be in successful operation for at least one year prior to the date of techno-commercial bid opening.
Further, the bidder’s average annual financial turnover during the last three years should be at least 30% of the estimated cost put to tender.
