NHPC has invited bids to set up a 200 MW solar power project at Khavda in the Indian state of Gujarat. The project will come up in the 600 MW solar park (Stage-1) of Gujarat State Electricity Corp. Ltd (GSECL).
NHPC will award the project through domestic competitive bidding followed by reverse auction. Bidding closes on August 29.
The successful bidder will be responsible for the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, and commissioning of the solar project along with the power evacuation system. It will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance of the solar PV plant for five years as well as an annual maintenance contract (AMC) of critical equipment for ten years.
The EPC completion period (including commissioning) is 15 months from the award of the contract.
For solar modules and inverters to be used in the project, NHPC intends to get an exemption from the local content requirement mandate under the Public Procurement (Preference to Make in India) order. Bidders are advised to quote accordingly. The project will, however, be awarded only after the grant of the aforesaid exemption, stated NHPC.
