India’s National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has invited EPC contractors to bid for 86 MW solar PV capacity in Gujarat under reverse auction. These projects can only be built with domestically manufactured solar cells and modules.

One of the two projects, at 65 MW capacity, will be set up for NTPC’s Kawas Gas Power Project, another 21 MW for NTPC’s Gandhar Gas Power Project. The capacity will be awarded to a single bidder in a single EPC package.

Scope of work for bidders includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning of the plants. The successful bidder will need to provide comprehensive maintenance and operation services of the plant for a period of 15 years post successful commissioning.

Bid documents for the tender are available for sale from August 12, 2017 and can be bought until September 8, 2017. Last date for submission of the bid is October 10, 2017. Further tender details can be viewed on NTPC tender website.

NTPC has launched a further DCR tender of 22 MW capacity in Uttar Pradesh (see 22 MW DCR PV Tender For Uttar Pradesh). Yet another recent DCR tender by NTPC relates to a module package for its combined cycle power project in Anta, Rajasthan (see NTPC Seeks Module Package For 133 MW Capacity).

India has time until December 14, 2017 to end its solar DCR category as decided by the representatives of India and the US following a World Trade Organization’s (WTO) verdict.

Recently, NTPC had invited bids for 250 MW of solar PV capacity under DCR category for an undisclosed location (see NTPC Floats 250 MW DCR PV Tender).
