KP Energy Bags BoS Contract for 464 MW Wind Projects in Gujarat
The tender was floated by NTPC Renewable Energy in January this year
Gujarat-based KP Energy, a balance of project solutions provider for wind projects, has secured the balance of system (BoS) contract for 464.10 MW interstate transmission system (ISTS)-linked wind power projects in Gujarat. The contract was awarded by NTPC Renewable Energy.
Under the contract, the company will provide a comprehensive range of services, including engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC).
The services include land acquisition and transfer for the project, the provision of all essential equipment for the balance of project, and a range of services related to unloading, storage, on-site handling, installation, insurance, civil and related construction, grid integration, testing, and commissioning.
KP Energy will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the project for three years.
The project is to be completed within 21 months from the date of the no-objection certificate.
NTPC Renewable Energy had floated the tender in January this year for a BoS package of ISTS-connected wind power projects of 1,000 MW capacity anywhere in Gujarat.
It has specified that the project should be adaptable for the installation of wind turbine generators with a capacity of 2.7 MW or greater. These turbine generators must be selected from the Revised List of Models and Manufacturers as issued by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
KP Energy will be responsible for proving the guaranteed performance parameters starting from 33 kV internal evacuation lines from the unit substation, pooling substation, central monitoring and control station, wind monitoring masts, and external EHV transmission line until the ISTS substation.
In September 2022, KP Energy had received an order worth ₹2.22 billion (~$26.69 million) from Aditya Birla Group to develop wind projects at Bhungar and Fulsar in the Bhavnagar district of Gujarat.
Last year, NTPC Renewable Energy had invited bids for the BoS package to develop 1,200 MW (4 X 300 MW) of solar power projects at the Khavda renewable park in Gujarat. The scope of work included the design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, and commissioning of solar power projects.
