Jharkhand Canal-Top Solar

The Jharkhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (JREDA) has reissued its tender for the deployment of 2 MW grid-connected canal-top solar power project at the Sikidiri Canal in Ranchi.

According to sources, the tender has been reissued because the previous tender received a very low response from bidders.

The brief scope of work for the successful bidder will include the design, engineering, procurement & supply, construction and commissioning of the 2 MW grid-connected canal-top solar PV power plant at Sikidiri Canal. The bidders will also be responsible for the comprehensive Operation & Maintenance (O&M) of the project for a period of 10 years from the date of commissioning. The developers will have a period of 6 months to complete the work on the project.

The last date for bid submission is September 11, 2019, and the techno-commercial bids will be opened on September 13, 2019. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for August 30, 2019, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders.

The estimated cost of the project as per the reissued tender is Rs 15.067 crore,  down from Rs 16.4 crore in the last tender. All bidders this time have to submit an Earnest Money Deposit of Rs 30.14 lakh along with their bids and not Rs 32 lakhs.

To be eligible, a bidder must have experience of design, supply, installation and commissioning of solar photovoltaic-based grid-connected power plant(s) of cumulative installed capacity of

10MW or above in or outside India, with a minimum megawatt-scale of the plant. The developers should also have experience of design, supply, installation and commissioning and operation &  commissioning of at least one 2 MW or above solar plant in India, which has been successfully commissioned after January 01, 2012, and in operation for at least one year as on the deadline for submission of the bid.

Additionally, the average annual turnover of the bidder for the last three financial years shall be at least Rs 5 crore and a net worth that is positive during the same period.
