Key Takeaways

  • NTPC has issued tender documents for a 15 MW grid connected solar PV project under the so-called Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) category
  • The ground mounted PV project will be developed at NTPC’s Kayamkulam power plant site
  • The winning bidders will need to set up the plant on a turnkey basis with operations and maintenance assured for a period of 15 years
  • Tender documents may be bought until November 3, 2017 and submitted latest by December 5, 2017

Rushing with tender capacities under the so-called domestic content requirement (DCR) before the expiration date on December 14, 2017, India’s largest public utility National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has launched a 15 MW tender for a ground mounted solar PV project at NTPC’s Kayamkulam in Kerala.

Recently, NTPC had issued tender documents for a balance of system package for its 133 MW Anta Solar Power Project in Rajasthan (see NTPC Tenders Balance Of System Package). For that project, domestically produced equipment was also a requirement as it was for other capacities recently tendered by NTPC (see NTPC Tenders 133 MW Module Package In Rajasthan).

At Kayamkulam, NTPC runs a combined cycle power plant. In March 2017, the company installed what it called India’s largest floating solar PV plant with 100 kW capacity at the Rajiv Gandhi Combined Cycle Power Plant (RGCCPP), Kayamkulam.

The scope of work for the tendered 15 MW project includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning of grid connected PV project on turnkey basis. The successful bidder will also have to provide operations and maintenance services for the project for a period of 15 years.

Interested bidders will have time until November 3, 2017 to buy tender documents, which they can submit the latest by December 5, 2017. Further details are available on the website of NTPC Tender.

NTPC has also launched another tender under the DCR category for a 7 MW PV Plant in Chhattisgarh (see NTPC Seeking EPC Contractor For 7 MW Plant).
