EIL Seeks Bids from Concentrated Solar Projects Suppliers for Services
The last day to submit the bids is March 7, 2023
Engineers India (EIL), a central government undertaking, has invited bids from suppliers of concentrated solar technology (CST) systems to provide balance of project services.
The tender is open for both Indian and foreign companies.
The last day to submit the bids is March 7, 2023. Bids will be opened on March 9.
Bidders must be technology licensors or suppliers of CST systems, including linear/parabolic concentrators, dish/engine, and power tower systems.
Bidders with a demonstrated CST system that is not fully commercialized can also submit their bids. EIL is open to establishing a partnership and collaborating toward the commercialization of the technology.
The scope of work encompasses civil and structural work, turbine package, and the entire utility systems consisting of cooling tower, water block, effluent treatment, instrument and plant air system, and electrical and instrumentation systems.
Potential technology licensors or suppliers of CST must have commissioned at least one CST project using the proposed technology within the last ten years.
They can also participate if they have at least one CST project that uses the proposed technology and is under execution. These projects should have been awarded within the last five years.
The CST concentrator (reflector and receiver combined) used in the reference projects must have achieved a minimum thermal efficiency of 70%.
They must provide test certification for mirrors that comply with ASTM/EU/ISO standards, demonstrating that they meet the minimum quality requirements for optical, visual, and edge faults, as well as durability tests for the reference project.
Bidders must furnish audited annual financial statements, including the balance sheet and profit and loss account for the latest financial year.
Their net worth must be positive, as shown in the immediately preceding year’s audited financial statement.
Globally, concentrated solar power companies had raised $13 million in venture capital deals in 2022, according to Mercom Capital’s 2022 Solar Funding and M&A Report.
