Ahasolar Wins Consultancy Contract for 52 MW Solar Project from BPCL

The Gujarat-based company quoted ₹5.1million to win the contract


Ahasolar Technologies was awarded the consultancy contract for setting up a 52 MW solar power project at Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, by Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL).

The company quoted ₹5.1 million (~$61,168) to win the ten-month contract.

BPCL had floated the tender for the project in February.

The company plans to power three of its refineries through the solar project: Mumbai Refinery- 8 MW, Bina Refinery- 22 MW, and Kochi Refinery- 16 MW.

Ahasolar will be responsible for concept to commissioning the project within the agreed schedule, ensuring the quality of procurement items and construction workmanship is in line with established engineering practices, standards, and codes, and project risk management.

It must also prepare and finalize all engineering and tender documents, technical specifications, and the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract terms and manage the technical and financial evaluation of EPC bids received by BPCL.

Ahasolar must plan and supervise the project execution and commissioning activities and provide post-commissioning support until the project is stabilized.

In August 2022, BPCL invited bids to hire a contractor to set up a 14 MW grid-connected solar power project on a turnkey basis at its Bina Refinery in Madhya Pradesh.

In November of the same year, the company also issued a tender to hire consultancy services to set up 6.9 MW of floating solar power projects in the rainwater harvesting pond and shore tank farm in Kochi, Kerala. The consultant will be responsible for assessing two floating solar power projects under the tender. The first one will be for approximately 3.2 MW capacity in a rainwater harvesting pond inside Kochi Refinery. Another 3.7 MW floating solar project will be commissioned inside the Kochi Refinery shore tank farm.

Recently, BPCL invited bids to set up a green hydrogen plant and refueling station at the 100% solar-powered Cochin International Airport in Kochi, Kerala.
