Indian Railways tenders 695 MW of round-the-clock power from renewable hybrids  


The proposed 695 MW RTC power supply shall operate in tandem with 500 MW solar power supply from IRCON Renewable Power Ltd (IRPL) and 195 MW from Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Ltd (RUMSL). [Indian Railways has signed 25-year PPAs with IRPL and RUMSL for 500 MW and 195 MW, respectively.]

The renewable power developer will supply power only for the time blocks where power is not available from the existing 695 MW solar power plants of IRPL and RUMSL and fulfil annual availability and time block availability.

The bidders selected by REMCL will set up RE power projects on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis.

RE developers must submit bids separately for Project-1 of 500 MW RTC in tandem with the existing 500 MW IRPL solar power supply and Project-2 of 195 MW RTC in tandem with the existing 195 MW RUMSL solar power supply. The bidders can participate in either or both of the projects.

Indian Railways will enter into a PPA with successful renewable power developers for a period of 25 years.

Under the RfS, the minimum bid capacity shall be 100 MW for Project-1 and 50 MW for Project-2. Project-wise, the developer will supply RE power complemented with dispatchable power from any other source/capacity/component, in a round-the-clock manner.
