(09. August 2017)
Marching ahead with domestic content requirement (DCR) category tenders, India’s National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has launched a 35 MW reverse auction.
The tender is divided into two projects. The 20 MW project is for NTPC’s Simhadri Power Project in Andhra Pradesh. Another 15 MW project is for its Ramagundam Power Project in Telangana. Both are coal-based power plants. The PV projects need to be handed over on a turnkey basis.
Along with design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning, successful bidders will have to offer comprehensive operation and maintenance of the plants for a period of 15 years.
Interested bidders can buy tender documents until September 15, 2017 and submit the documents until October 12, 2017. More details are available on NTPC’s tender website.
As the cut off date nears – by December 14, 2017 DCR tenders will be stopped due to a World Trade Organization’s (WTO) ruling -, India’s largest utility has become very active in launching tenders for local content solar products. The most recent were tenders in early August in Gujarat (see NTPC Invites Bids For 86 MW In Gujarat), Uttar Pradesh (see 22 MW DCR PV Tender For Uttar Pradesh) and Rajasthan (see NTPC Seeks Module Package For 133 MW Capacity).
