Coal Lignite Urja Vikas, a joint venture between Coal India Limited & NLC India, has proposed to provide project management consultancy services for the development of a 40 MW solar project in the Surajpur region of Chhattisgarh.
The deadline for proposal submissions is 24th May 2022, and on the same day, the bidding process will begin.
Coal Lignite Urja Vikas published a tender in September for the construction of the 40MW ground-mounted grid-connected solar installations for southeastern coalfields in the Surajpur district of Chhattisgarh. BVG India, Pune was awarded the 10-year Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contracts.
The winning bidder is responsible for monitoring the project’s operation and maintenance activity for 10 years. To participate in the tender, bidders must pay a $313,000 ($4,053) earnest money deposit.
In the previous seven years, the bidder should have executed one similar project of 80% of the projected total capacity, two similar projects of 50% of the anticipated total capacity, or three similar projects of 40% of the estimated total capacity. The bidder should have also completed at least five consultancy tasks for similar projects.
If a bidder provides experience for similar projects, such as an owner’s engineer or a PMC consultant, only half of their experience will be evaluated. Each category of a project must be completed by the bidder with a minimum of 25% experience.
During the last three financial years ending March 31 of the previous financial year, the bidder’s average yearly financial turnover should have been at least $9.4 million ($121,730).
From the start date through the end of the contract time, the consultant should keep track of all site operations and keep documents.
The consultant should oversee the project’s construction, erection, testing, and commissioning, including equipment and facilities, to guarantee complete compliance with the EPC contract’s quality, safety, standards, and procedures, as well as meeting the deadline.
The consultant should examine and confirm the EPC contractor’s project execution timetable.
The price will be lowered by 0.5 percent of the contract value per week of delay, up to a maximum of 5% of the contract value, if the project’s commissioning is delayed.
