NTPC launches tender for 60 MW solar in Cuba


India’s state-owned power generator NTPC, on behalf of Unión Eléctrica de Cuba (UNE), has invited global bids to set up a 60 MW grid-connected solar PV project in the Republic of Cuba.

The selected developer will execute the project on a build-own-operate basis. It will sign a 25-year power purchase and sale agreement (PPA) with the UNE.

The developer’s scope of work includes design, financing, construction, installation, commissioning, and operation of the PV plant for the 25-year PPA duration.

The project is being executed under Program-06 of the International Solar Alliance (ISA), which supports the implementation of grid-connected solar PV projects in ISA member countries.

The government of Cuba targets 2.1 GW of solar PV capacity by 2030. Achieving this target would require the implementation of the solar PV project in a phased manner. Being a member country of ISA, the government of Cuba has sought the support of ISA. Under this program, ISA, through its consultant NTPC Limited, is implementing solar parks of 1.15 GW capacity along with battery energy storage system (BESS) support of 150 MW/150 MWh in Cuba.
