Madhya Pradesh Jal Nigam (MPJN) has invited bids for consultancy services for 100 MW solar and 60 MW wind power projects under the group captive mechanism.

The selected bidder must furnish 10% of the contract value as a performance bank guarantee.

The consultant should support regulatory affairs, project assessment, and execution for solar and wind projects. The scope of work involves navigating regulatory requirements, facilitating approvals, and assisting in forming generating companies under group captive regulations.

The consultant must also guide project planning, including land assessment for solar projects, optimizing project commissioning, and ensuring power evacuation suitability.

To execute the projects and manage the bidding process, the consultancy must support MPJN by assisting with requests for proposals, managing bidder queries, and overseeing contract documentation and project execution.
