The tender for the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, commissioning, and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of 34 MW (AC) ground-based solar PV power plant for different packages at SCCL has been extended from May 13, 2020, to June 12, 2020. The bids will now be opened on the new deadline.

After which, in another notification the agency had issued another notification asking all the prospective bidders for its tender for the selection of bidders for the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, commissioning and O&M of 15 MW floating solar PV power plant for different sites at SCCL in Telangana, to submit their pre-bid queries online.
