The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a notification, extending the bid submission deadline for three of its active solar PV project tenders. The three tenders for which the deadlines have been extended include the 34 MW (AC) ground-based plant for different packages at SCCL, 32 MW (AC) OB Dump based plant for different packages at SCCL, and the tender for 15 MW (AC) floating solar plant for different packages also at SCCL in Telangana.

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 April 20, 2020, to May 13, 2020. The bids will now be opened on the new deadline.

The bids will now be opened on the new deadline.

Finally, for the tender for the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, commissioning and O&M of a 15 MW (AC) floating solar PV power plant for different packages at SCCL have been extended from May 4, 2020, to May 18, 2020. The bids will now be opened on the new deadline.

The reason behind the extension of the three tender deadlines is believed to be due to the economic slowdown caused due to the global COVID-19 outbreak and the consequent nationwide lockdown which has been in place since March 25, 2020.

Earlier this month, SECI had issued a Request for Selection (RfS) document for selection of solar power developers for setting up of 2500 MW ISTS-Connected Solar PV Power Projects at Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Power Park (UMREPP) in Koppal District, Karnataka under Tariff-based Competitive Bidding (ISTS-X). Approximately 13000 Acres of land on lease basis is available in Talakal and surrounding villages of Koppal District of Karnataka, India for this project.
