TERI has issued a tender for the commissioning of Battery Energy Storage Systems on turnkey basis under the UI-ASSIST initiative with BRPL in Delhi
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) has issued a tender for the commissioning of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) on turnkey basis under the UI-ASSIST initiative with the BSES Rajdhani (BRPL) in Delhi.
The scope of work for the selected developer will include the site survey, planning, design, engineering, and transportation to site, insurance, supply at the site, unloading, handling, installation, integration, testing, commissioning & demonstration of the BESS. The developer will also be required to sign a Comprehensive Annual Maintenance Contract (CAMC) for a period of 5 years from the date of successful commissioning.
The institute has informed that the objective behind the project is that the large penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), such as rooftop solar into the Distribution Network (DN), fast-changing demand patterns and the electrification of transportation through electric vehicles pose technical challenges to existing power distribution networks. And that Grid-scale energy storage solutions possess the capability to support the sustainable growth of renewable energy sources’ integration with the power system and provide grid-balancing services ensuring energy security and reliability.
The last date for bid submission is January 17, 2019, and the techno-commercial bids will be opened on January 20, 2019. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for December 31, 2019, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders.
