Mahatma Phule Renewable Energy and Infrastructure Technology (MAHAPREIT) has invited bids to select a project management consultant for renewable energy projects in Goa.

The successful bidder will conduct site surveys, design the systems, estimate project costs, and assess financial feasibility.

Additionally, the consultant will be required to provide bid advisory services, including finalizing project specifications, preparing bid documents, and assisting in the bid evaluation process. The agency will also oversee project management, compliance management, performance testing, and commissioning of renewable energy systems.

Bidders must submit ₹10,000 (~$122) plus 18% GST as the cost of the bid document and an earnest money deposit of ₹250,000 (~$3,000).

The chosen bidder cannot employ individuals previously under contract and who had worked for MAHAPREIT.

Additionally, the chosen bidder cannot subcontract or outsource any aspect of the specified work to an agency designated by MAHAPREIT, nor can it sublet the assigned tasks. Failure to disclose such affiliations may result in the termination of the agency.

Earlier this month, the Goa Energy Development Agency invited bids to commission 30 MW of rooftop solar projects on government buildings through the renewable energy service company model.

In his budget announcement in March 2023, the state’s chief minister proposed installing 25-30 MW of solar power projects on all government buildings, stadiums, sports complexes, market complexes, and educational institutions.
