NTPC launches 1.2 GW wind-solar hybrid tender


NTPC has invited bids for selection of developers to supply 1.2 GW hybrid power from wind-solar hybrid power projects with or without energy storage system in India. The successful bidders will develop projects on a build-own-operate basis. The projects can be located anywhere in India and must connect to the interstate transmission grid.

The minimum bid capacity is 50 MW and in multiples of 10 MW thereafter. A bidder can bid for individual minimum project size of 50 MW at one site. Solar and wind components of the hybrid project may be located at the same or different locations. Further, the rated power capacity of one resource (wind or solar) must be at least 33% of the total contracted capacity. The maximum capacity to be allotted to a single bidder shall be 600 MW.

“Hybrid power projects already under construction or yet to be commissioned or commissioned but not having long-terms PPA with any agency and selling hybrid power on short term or merchant basis may also be considered for the selection under this tender subject to the condition that these projects have not been accepted under any state or central scheme and also do not have obligation to sell the power to any beneficiaries… In such case, they will be given the benefit of a longer period of PPA, commensurate to the duration between the actual date of commencement of supply of power and scheduled commencement of supply date (SCSD),” reads the tender document.

In a separate development, NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd has invited bids to set up 100 MW of ISTS-connected co-located or non-co-located hybrid power projects (50 MW solar + 50 MW wind) anywhere in India. The projects are to be developed on a build-own-operate basis.

Pragati Power Corp. Ltd will enter into a power purchase agreement with the successful bidders for a period of 15 years. Power procured by Pragati Power Corp. Ltd has been provisioned to be sold to the different buying utilities of India under their existing PPA. Bidding closes on July 18.
