Nalanda University to get a 5 MW solar plant


Nalanda University has invited proposals from government-owned entities to install a 5 MW (AC) grid-connected, ground-mounted solar PV plant at its permanent campus in Nalanda, Bihar, on a turnkey basis.

The PV project is tendered under the second phase of the Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Scheme, which provides viability gap funding (VGF) support for state-run generators to set up solar projects using domestically-made equipment. 

The selected installer’s scope of work includes design, procurement, installation, testing and commissioning, and comprehensive operation and maintenance of the entire installation for five years.

The site is located along the Patna-Rajgir Highway and is well connected with the city of Rajgir.

The site’s total area is approximately 455 acres, out of which 20 acres have been allotted for the ground-mounted solar system and associated job. 

The estimated cost of the project is INR 24.25 crore and the period of completion 12 months.
