In August, ONGC had invited bids for the deployment of a 2 MW grid-interactive floating solar PV power project on the water reservoirs inside ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Limited (OMPL) complex.

The scope of work for the selected bidders will include the design, detailed engineering, testing, installation, supply, and commissioning of the floating solar plant on a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) basis.

Last year, Vikram Solar had commissioned a 10 MW solar power plant at ONGC’s Dhaej, Gandhar and Hazira plant in Gujarat. The solar plant has been built to meet the Renewable Power obligation (RPO) of ONGC for the Gujarat region and is intended for its captive power usage. Further, the plant is segregated into eight blocks of 1.25 MW each for better management and increasing efficiency.
