SCCL tenders EPC contract for 22 MW solar plant


Solar Energy Corp. of India Ltd., on behalf of state-owned coal miner Singareni Collieries Company Ltd. (SCCL), has opened domestic bids to set up a grid-interactive 22 MW (AC) solar power plant on a turnkey basis in Telangana. The solar plant will be built on an overburden dump at SCCL’s Ramagundam Opencast–I site.

The contract covers design, engineering, supply, construction, testing, and commissioning of the solar plant. The winning contractor will also provide operation and maintenance services for a period of 10 years.

Solar cells and modules used for the PV project must be made in India. The cell and module manufacturers must also be listed in the Approved List of Models and Manufacturers (ALMM), which is published by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. 

For crystalline silicon technology, all process steps and quality control measures involved in the production of solar cells and modules – from wafers to the final assembly of solar cells into modules – must be performed at the facilities of PV manufacturers in India.
