AAI Invites Bids for Maintenance of 2 MW Rooftop Solar Project at Kolkata Airport

The last date to submit bids is July 31, 2024


Airports Authority of India (AAI) has floated a tender for the annual comprehensive maintenance, operation, and monitoring of a 2 MW rooftop solar power project at NSCBI Airport, Kolkata, for 2024-2027.

The last date for the submission of bids is July 31, 2024. Bids will be opened the next day.

The project’s estimated cost is ₹8.7 million (~$104,264).

Bidders must pay a non-refundable fee of ₹1180 (~$14.12) and an earnest money deposit of ₹174,235 (~$2,085).

They must have completed or substantially completed the following work criteria during the last seven years ending on July 30, 2024:

  • Three projects, each worth ₹1.16 million (~$13,899)
  • or two projects, each worth ₹1.45 million (~$17,351)
  • or one project worth ₹2.32 million (~$28,122)

The nature of the work must be similar, including the supply, installation, testing, and commissioning, comprehensive maintenance, operation, and monitoring of a complete solar power project, either rooftop or ground-mounted, including SCADA, with a minimum installed capacity of 1.5 MW as a single installation.

The eligibility for issuing the tender for a one-year contract will be assessed based on the completed cost for one year of the annual maintenance contract, calculated on a pro-rata basis.

In March 2024, AAI floated a tender for the annual operation and maintenance of a 1.2 MW ground-mounted solar power project for 24 months at the Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport in Varanasi.

Last March, the Ministry of Civil Aviation advised the states to ensure that carbon emission reduction measures are incorporated into the design and standards for greenfield airport development proposals, detailed project reports, and airport master plans before submitting them to the nodal ministry.
