East Coast Railway Invites Bids for 1 MW Rooftop Solar System

The last date to submit the bids is July 29, 2024


The Khurda Road Division of East Coast Railway has invited bids to install a 1 MW grid-connected rooftop solar system atop its Mainline Electric Multiple Unit shed.

The advertised contact value is ₹52.47 million (~$628,549 million).

The last date to submit the bids is July 29, 2024. Bids will be opened on the same day.

Bidders must furnish an earnest money deposit of ₹412,400 (~$4,940).

The selected bidder must install the system within 60 days of receiving the work order.

The scope of work includes supplying, installing, and commissioning the grid-connected rooftop solar system with mono crystalline panels, inverters, MS hot-dipped galvanized structures, power conditioning units, junction boxes, AC and DC distribution boards, armored power and control cables, remote data monitoring system, and net metering.

Bidders should have completed three similar works, each costing at least 30% of advertised value, or two similar works, each costing at least 40% of advertised value, or one similar work costing not less than 60% of advertised value during the last seven years.

A similar nature of work here refers to the supply, erection, testing, and commissioning of rooftop solar systems, both off the grid and on the grid, with or without battery backup, for general use or street lights.

Bidders must have a minimum average annual contractual turnover of V/N or V, whichever is less, where V is the advertised value of the tender in crores of rupees and N is the number of years prescribed for the completion of the work for which bids have been invited.

The annual contractual turnover will be calculated as the average of the “total contractual payments” over the previous three financial years.

Recently, the Prayagraj Division of North Central Railway floated two tenders to install 7 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar power systems.
