Goa invites EoI to set up floating solar plants at four dam locations


Goa’s Department of New & Renewable Energy (DNRE) has invited Expression of Interest (EOI) from solar power developers to set up grid-connected floating PV plants at four dam locations in the State. The solar plants, to be installed on a ‘design-built-finance-operate’ model for 25 years, shall come upon the water surface available at Salaulim, Amthanem, Anjunem, and Chapoli Dams.

Interested developers are required to submit details like indicative project cost (INR crore/MW), water body area requirement (acre/MW), and indicative PPA tariff (INR/kWh), in addition to the developer’s past experience and financial capability. Prospective developers will be asked to submit their bids.

The selected developer shall assess the potential of the grid-connected floating solar plant at each location. The scope of work also includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing, and commissioning of the plants with operation and maintenance and the evacuation of the power and its transmission up to the nearest substation.
