Lucknow Solar Corporation Issues Project Management Consultancy Tender

The last date for the submission of bids is April 18, 2024


The Lucknow Solar Power Development Corporation (LSPDCL) has floated a tender seeking consultancy firms to establish a project management unit to assist in the implementation, execution, and monitoring of both operational and future solar power projects/solar parks.

The last date for submitting bids is April 18, 2024. Bids will be opened the next day.

LSPDCL was established in 2015 as a collaborative venture between the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and the Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA). Its primary aim is to strategize, develop, operate, and uphold solar parks in Uttar Pradesh.

The company has an operational solar power park asset portfolio totaling 365 MW and has received approval to establish two solar parks with a capacity of 110 MW each in Kanpur Dehat and Kanpur Nagar.

LSPDCL intends to develop 2-3 GW capacity solar parks/solar power projects. With these proposed and upcoming projects in mind, LSPDCL anticipates the need for an additional workforce to effectively monitor and implement both operational and forthcoming solar power projects/solar parks.

Bidders have to pay ₹29,500 (~$354.06) as the cost of the tender document and ₹1 million (~$12,002) as an earnest money deposit.

The allotted project management work must be completed in 26 months.

Bidders should have established a minimum of two long-term (at least two years) project management units or have experience in providing project management consultancy services with a team of at least two members on a retainer basis to central/state government agencies, state governments, utilities, smart city SPVs, regulatory commissions in the renewable energy or energy sector over the past six years.

The project management unit should have been operational for at least six months for ongoing assignments.

Bidders must demonstrate an average annual turnover of ₹250 million (~$3 million) in the power/renewable energy sector derived from professional/consultancy/advisory services in the financial years 2021, 2022, and 2023.

They should have maintained a positive net worth in these years.

Last year, the Lucknow Development Authority invited bids to select operators to set up and maintain five public electric vehicle charging stations (50 charging points) at Janeshwar Mishra Park, Lohiya Park, and Jyotiba Phule Park.
