GUVNL tenders for 250 MW/500 MWh standalone battery storage, 1 GW of solar projects


Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd (GUVNL) has invited proposals to set up pilot projects of standalone battery energy storage systems (BESS) connected with the State Grid, for an aggregate storage capacity of 500 MWh (250 MW x 2 hours) with two complete charge-discharge cycles per day.  It will utilize these energy storage systems, on an “on-demand” basis, suited to the requirements of the State DISCOMs during the peak and off-peak hours.

GUVNL will enter into a battery energy storage purchase agreement (BESPA) with the successful bidders.

BESS developers selected by GUVNL will set up the BESS on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis, with the primary objective of making the energy storage facility available to GUVNL for charging/discharging of the BESS on an “on demand” basis.

1 GW of solar projects

GUVNL has also launched a tender to procure 500 MW of solar power from the projects to be set up anywhere in India with Greenshoe option of additional capacity up to 500 MW without energy storage. Bidding closes on April 22.

The bidders selected by GUVNL will set up solar power projects on a build-own-operate basis.

“Projects under construction, projects which are not yet commissioned and projects already commissioned but do not have any long term PPA with any agency and selling power on short-term or merchant plant basis will, however, be considered, in case these projects are not already accepted under any other Central or State Schemes and do not have any obligations towards existing buyers,” as per the tender document.
