IOCL has issued a tender for setting up of 300 kWp ground-mounted and rooftop solar plant at its LPG bottling plant in Durgapur, West Bengal.

The Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) has issued a tender, inviting bids from eligible firms for setting up of a grid-connected 300 kWp ground-mounted and rooftop solar PV power plant at its LPG bottling plant in Durgapur, West Bengal.

The scope of work for the selected developers will include the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the 300 kW solar system on a turnkey basis along with comprehensive Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of the plant for a period of 1 year. Upon successful completion of the first part of the work, the developers will also be required to provide O&M services for the solar system for a further period of 4 years.

The estimated cost of the project is Rs 1.38 crore, and all bidders will be required to submit an Earnest Money Deposit of Rs 1.38 lakh along with their bids.

The last date for bid submission is November 16, 2020, and the techno-commercial bids will be opened on the same date. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for November 9, 2020, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders. The developers will have a period of 4 months to complete the work on installation of the project.

In September, IOCL had issued a tender for setting up of 2.75 MW ground-mounted solar power project at the firms’ LPG bottling plant in Trichy, Tamil Nadu. IOCL proposes 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. The project will be done through an EPC Contractor on LSTK basis.

In October, the firm had reported that its northern regional office in the national capital has commissioned a 50-kilowatt (kW) rooftop solar power plant to electrify the building. “The solar plant has 150 solar panels of 335 watts each and will generate approximately 50,400 units of electricity annually,” the state-owned petroleum major said in a statement.
