The last day to submit the bids is December 27, 2023


NTPC Renewable Energy has invited bids to supply balance of system (BoS) package for 1.2 GW inter-state transmission system (ISTS)-connected wind power projects in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, with a 300 MW greenshoe option.

The last day to submit the bids is December 27, 2023. Bids will be opened on the same day.

Every bid submission should be supported by a bid security declaration.

The project’s scope includes design, engineering, micro-siting, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing, commissioning, and proving the guaranteed performance parameters to install 3 MW and above wind projects starting from 33kV internal evacuation lines from unit substation until the ISTS substation.

Supply, civil works and installation of wind turbine generators, unit substations, and SCADA are not in the package’s scope.

Bidders should have arranged land or micro-sited wind turbines for wind power projects with a cumulative installed capacity of 40 MW or higher. At least one project must have had a capacity of 10 MW or more, and this project should have been in operation for at least six months before the bid opening date.

Alternatively, bidders should have executed an industrial project in the last ten years as either a developer or an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor in the power, steel, oil, gas, petrochemical, fertilizer, cement, coal mining, or any other process industry.

These projects should have the required financial value as mentioned below:

  • For projects with a quoted capacity ranging from 50 MW to 300 MW, the minimum financial figure is ₹450 million (~$54 million).
  • For projects with a quoted capacity above 300 MW, the minimum financial figure is ₹1.5 million (~$18,000)/MW.

Bidders should have executed at least one electrical substation with a 33 kV or higher voltage level, including equipment like 33 kV or above voltage level circuit breakers and power transformers, either as developers or EPC contractors.

The average annual turnover of the bidders for any three financial years out of the preceding five financial years, as of the bid opening date, should not be less than the specified financial figure below:

  • The minimum annual turnover for a quoted capacity of 50 MW- 300 MW should be ₹450 million (~$54 million).
  • The minimum annual turnover for a quoted capacity of more than 300 MW should be ₹1.5 million (~$18,000)/MW.

Bidders should have a positive net worth on the last day of the preceding financial year.

Only wind turbine generator models listed in the Revised List of Models and Manufacturers issued by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy must be deployed.

Recently, NTPC Renewable Energy floated two land and power evacuation package tenders to develop ISTS-connected solar projects in Andhra Pradesh with greenshoe options.

Earlier, NTPC Renewable Energy invited bids for BoS package for 1,080 MW ISTS-connected wind energy project in Karnataka.
