State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited has invited bids to manufacture and supply 32,102 kW of crystalline PV modules for its Djermaya solar project in Chad, Africa.
Only Indian PV module manufacturers with a minimum manufacturing capacity of 120 MW/annum are eligible to bid.
The modules can be based on mono or multi-crystalline cells that have a minimum of 16% conversion efficiency under standard temperature conditions. The modules must have a minimum power output of 340 watts and a minimum 14% conversion efficiency with 72 cells arranged in a 12×6 series configuration.
One vendor can quote for only one type of PV module, i.e., either multi- or mono-crystalline.
The panels shall be suitable for use in PV systems with a maximum voltage of 1,500 V DC, and in relative humidity from 15% to 95% with an operating temperature between -10°C to +80°C.
The panels must be covered by a 10-year warranty and 25-year linear performance guarantee for their output peak watt capacity, which should not be less than 90% at the end of 10 years and not less than 80% at the end of 25 years from the completion of the trial run.
Delivery is required by April 30, 2021.
