The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a tender, inviting bids from eligible bidders, for the commissioning of 50 MW (AC) solar PV project with land in the state of Tamil Nadu.

It has been clarified that eligibility conditions for the tender are as per the total 50 MWac capacity which includes the 40 MW ground-mounted solar plant and the 10 MW agro PV set up. Bidders have therefore been advised to quote for the complete capacity of the tender, and the total capacity will be awarded to the lowest bidder.

However, if the overall project cost for the 50 MW capacity is not found feasible by SECI, then it may reduce/withdraw the agro PV site capacity and its price from the overall project capacity and the price. Accordingly, only the 40 MW ground-based solar project will be awarded to the successful bidder. 

The scope of work for the selected bidders will include the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of the full 50 MW (AC) solar project with the land. The developers will also be required to provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services for the projects for a period of 10 years from the date of successful commissioning.

As per the tender, the first contract under the scope is for providing all the design, engineering, commissioning, etc. services for the plant. The second contract is for the developer to provide comprehensive operation & maintenance of the solar PV plant for 10 years from the date of operational acceptance. The third contract is for the acquisition and transfer of land including developed infrastructure (if any).

The last date for bid submission is March 1, 2021, and the technical bids will be opened on the same date. The date and time of opening of the price bids will be intimated to the shortlisted bidders from the technical round.

A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for January 22, 2021, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders.
