The scope of work covers design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation, testing, and commissioning of solar power projects but excludes the supply of solar modules.

The project will also comprise the design and construction of the foundation and the erection of a tracker-based module mounting structure for the solar panels, as well as the installation of the modules on the tracker and solar modules interconnection.

The deadline for bid submissions is July 6, 2022. On the same day, bids will be opened.

Bidders will be required to provide a bid security deposit of ₹100 million for one block of 315 MW and ₹200 million for two or more blocks of 315 MW a piece.

As an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor or developer, the bidder must have designed, supplied, constructed, and commissioned the balance of system of grid-connected solar power projects with a cumulative installed capacity of 40 MW or more than that. At least one project should have had a capacity of 10 MW or more.

The reference project, with a capacity of 10 MW or more, must have been operational for at least six months prior to the bid opening.

The reference grid-connected solar power plant of 10 MW or greater capacity produced by the bidder for itself or any other client shall be at a single location.
