NTPC Tenders for 600 MW of Wind-Solar Hybrid Projects Across India

NTPC has tendered for the development of ISTS-connected wind-solar hybrid power project(s) up to 600 MW anywhere in India.

NTPC Limited has issued a tender, inviting bids from eligible bidders for the development of ISTS-connected wind-solar hybrid power project(s) up to 600 MW anywhere in India. The hybrid power project is intended to be developed by NTPC through its newly-established wholly-owned subsidiary NTPC Renewable Energy Limited.

As per the tender documents, the offered projects should be hybrid with the two sources (wind and solar), where the rated power capacity of one resource (wind or solar) shall be at least 33 percent of the total offered hybrid project capacity. The offered project(s) can be connected to a single injection point or separate injection points on the ISTS network. 

Further, the individual project capacity at a single location (i.e. connected to the same pooling substation) should not be less than 50 MW. In case, the solar and wind projects are connected at different pooling substations, the individual project capacity of solar and wind should not be less than 50 MW. And the offered hybrid project capacity shall be in multiples 10 MW.

The scope of work for the selected bidders will include the detailed design, engineering, micro-siting, manufacture, supply, erection, testing, commissioning and proving the guaranteed performance parameters for wind energy project/ solar energy projects. The developers will also be responsible for comprehensive operation & maintenance of the offered wind farm/ solar farms for a period of 3 years from the date of successful commissioning.

The last date for bid submission is May 31, 2021, and the techno-commercial bids will be opened on the same date. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for May 21, 2021, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders.

To be eligible for participating in the bidding process, the bidder should have designed/ got designed, supplied, erected/ supervised erection and commissioned/ supervised commissioning of grid-connected solar PV/ wind/ wind-solar hybrid power plant(s) of cumulative installed capacity of 40 MW(AC) or higher, out of which at least one plant should have been of 10 MW(AC) or higher capacity. The reference plant of 10 MW(AC) or higher capacity must have been in successful operation for at least six months prior to the date of techno-commercial bid opening.

Financially, for the offered project capacity of 300 MW or below, the average annual turnover of the bidder should not be less than Rs 242 crore during the preceding 3 financial years. And for offered projects more than 300 MW capacity, the average annual turnover of the bidder should not be less than Rs 484 crore.
