SECI is inviting bids on behalf of Coal India Limited (CIL). The EPC contract includes jobs for design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing, commissioning of the plant. The selected bidder also has to carry out operations and maintenance of the plant for a period of 10 years.

CIL had signed two agreements with SECI to implement 200 MW of solar power capacity in Madhya Pradesh in June 2016 (see Solar Power For Coal India Limited). It will be divided into two projects of 100 MW each for two CIL subsidiaries. In all, CIL wants SECI to set up solar power projects of 1,000 MW capacity across the country in a phased manner.
