DVC seeks EPC contractors for 30 MW of floating solar


Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI), on behalf of state-owned power generator Damodar Valley Corp. (DVC), has started accepting bids to set up 30 MWac of grid-connected floating solar capacity on raw water reservoirs for DVC thermal power plants.

The capacity will be built at DVC thermal power stations in Jharkhand (6 MW at Koderma) and West Bengal (14 MW at Mejia and 10 MW at Raghunathpur). However, the cumulative amount of 30 MW will be awarded to a single contractor.

The cells and modules for the PV plants must be sourced from manufacturers on the Approved List of Models and Manufacturers (ALMM), which is published by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

The prospective contractor will handle design, engineering, supply, construction, testing, and commissioning. It will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services for 10 years after successfully commissioning the plant.
