In September, the Indian Oil Corporation had itself issued the tender for the 2.75 MW ground-mounted solar power project at the firms’ LPG bottling plant in Trichy, Tamil Nadu. IOCL had proposed to set up the 2.75 MWp solar project for captive consumption at multiple IOCL locations across Tamil Nadu through the Open Access Agreement and Energy Wheeling Agreement.

However, after being unable to close the tender, IOCL has appointed CEL to conduct the tendering process for the project.
