India’s state owned utility National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) is looking for EPC contractors for one 22 MW solar power plant to be set up in Uttar Pradesh. The project needs to be delivered on a turnkey basis in Uttar Pradesh’s Auraiya region under the so-called domestic content requirement (DCR) category.  

While NTPC has not specified where exactly in Auraiya this power plant will come up, it is supposed to be located at NTPC’s gas power plant. The utility has also floated tenders for 86 MW of PV capacity for its Gujarat located gas based power projects recently (see NTPC Invites Bids For 86 MW Under DCR Category).

NTPC has specified that the entire capacity will be awarded to a single bidder in a single 22 MW block. The successful bidder needs to provide the following jobs: design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning. Post successful commissioning, the bidder will also render comprehensive operation and maintenance services for the plant.

NTPC intends to finance the project through its internal resources.

Bid documents for the project can be bought from NTPC between August 12 and September 8, 2017. Last date to submit bids is October 11, 2017.

Detailed information about bidding terms and conditions can be accessed on NTPC tender website.

In a series of DCR tenders launched recently before the category becomes irrelevant to the Indian solar market post December 14, 2017, NTPC is also looking for a module package for 133 MW for its Combined Cycle Power Project in Kota (see NTPC Seeks Module Package For 133 MW Capacity).
