SECI Solar Tenders Deadline

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has extended the bid submission deadline for two solar tenders, the 1500 MW CPSU-II and the 1200 MW (ISTS-VI).

The nodal agency has extended the bid submission deadline for its tender for selection of solar power developers for setting up of 1500 MW grid-connected (including mini and microgrid) solar PV power projects in India (Tranche-II) under the second phase of the CPSU (Government Producers Scheme) Scheme for a second time.

Last month, it extended the deadline for the tender from August 23, 2019, to September 9, 2019. And now, SECI has extended the deadline for bid submissions until September 13, 2019.

The second tender, for which the deadline has been extended is the 1200 MW ISTS-VI tender which was issued in June. The tender had a special condition that all projects developed would have to be connected only to the ISTS network in Madhya Pradesh. The grid-connected solar PV projects awarded under the tender can be developed anywhere in India on a “Build Own Operate” (B-O-O) basis. However, the delivery point for the projects shall be chosen by the bidder only out of designated ISTS substations located in Madhya Pradesh.

The last date for bid submission on the tender has been extended up to September 16, 2019.

In August, SECI had also extended the bid submission deadline on its Request for Selection (RfS) for selection of solar power developers (SPD) for setting up of 6 GW ISTS-Connected solar PV power plants linked with setting up of 2 GW (per annum) solar manufacturing plant.

SECI has extended the deadline for bid submission on this tender from August 26, 2019, to September 11, 2019.

As per the provisions of the RfS, the SPDs selected by SECI are required to set up cumulative annual solar manufacturing capacity of 2 GW, which shall be set up over a maximum period of 2 years.
