HPCL Tender For Feasibility Study Of 100-150 MW Wind-Solar Hybrid BESS HPCL Issues Tender for Supply of 78 MW Renewable Energy

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation has invited bids from consultants to conduct a feasibility study for development of a 100-150 MW hybrid battery energy storage system on vacant land at Anantapuram Solar Park for captive use in Andhra Pradesh. HPCL had floated a similar tender in July 2022 for selection of a project management consultant to supervise a 10 MW ground-mounted solar project at Ankaleshwar, Gujarat.

The tender mentions July 13 as the last date for online submission of a bid which will be opened the same day. The earnest money deposit is Rs 2,00,000 besides a composite performance bank guarantee equivalent to 3% of the total project value.

Among the eligibility criterions for a successful bidder are that a bidder can only be from among Class I and Class II local suppliers.

Secondly, a bidder should have a rich experience of successfully completing similar projects minimum capacity of 50 MW in last 7 years. Alternatively, a consultant should have carried out project management consultancy or detailed engineering for development of wind-solar hybrid power projects under open access regulation for client’s self-use or third party sale which have been either commissioned and are operational. The average annual turnover for a bidder to succeed should not be less than Rs 1.8 million/MW during the last three years ending March 31, 2022 .

Being a consultant, one must study the various options available for technology suitable for the proposed project development and suggest the best technology viable for the solar at the particular land site, given that the requirements vary according to topography. They must also estimate energy generation from the proposed hybrid project based on the solar resource assessment of the site, wind conditions at the location and technology and design.

A consultant should be able to prepare the power evaluation report, including the study of the present electrical connection with the grid and an assessment of various feasible methods of power evacuation through grid interconnection.
