The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued amendments and two-week bidding extension for the installation and commissioning of a 20 MW (AC) solar plant (50 MWp DC) with 20 MW/50 MWh battery energy storage in the union territory of Ladakh.
The bidding deadline, initially set for February 10, is now pushed to February 24.
Among the tender amendments, SECI has clarified the modules must be domestically manufactured in India. This compliance, however, doesn’t apply to cells.
The tender inviting global bids was floated by SECI in December last year.
As per the tender document, the plant—to be set up in turnkey mode—shall come up at Phyang village in Leh district.
The work scope includes design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, commissioning of the plant, and comprehensive operation and maintenance for ten years.
Only domestically manufactured bifacial mono-crystalline modules (with front-side efficiency ≥ 19.5%) are allowed for the project. The PV modules manufacturer should have supplied a minimum of 5 GW capacity globally or 500 MW in India in the last five years (as on the last date of bid submission).
