NTPC Invites Bids for 1.15 MW Rooftop Solar Project at ICMR

The last date for submitting bids is June 26, 2024


NTPC has invited bids for implementing a 1,153 kW grid-connected rooftop solar power project in Maharashtra for the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

The last date for submitting bids is June 26, 2024. Bids will be opened the next day.

The scope of work includes installing solar photovoltaic systems on the rooftops of various ICMR and other government buildings. These systems should be installed in shadow-free areas to maximize power generation for each building.

The final capacity of each project will be determined based on detailed engineering and the approved rooftop design.

If rooftop access is not already available, a permanent staircase or ladder, at least 1.0 m wide and finished with primer and weather-resistant enamel paint, must be provided.

The successful bidder will be responsible for the design, engineering, testing, and all other activities, including a preliminary visual assessment of the roof, water, electricity, and security arrangements and determining the optimal capacity for the solar projects.

They will also handle the operation and maintenance activities for ten years.

Bidders must pay a bid security of ₹1 million (~$11,977).

Within 28 days of receiving the award notification, the successful bidder must provide securities amounting to 10% of the contract price for all the contracts.

These securities should initially be valid for 90 days beyond the end of the scheduled defect liability period of the last equipment covered under the contract.

Only enlisted bidders who are already qualified can submit bids.

The bidders’ average annual turnover over the past three financial years should be at least ₹51.08 million (~$611,781) or the equivalent in foreign currency.

Their net worth as of the last day of the preceding financial year should be at least 100% of their paid-up share capital.

Recently, NTPC invited bids to select developers to supply 1,200 MW of firm and dispatchable power (assured peak power supply) from interstate transmission system -connected renewable energy projects anywhere in India on a built-own-operate arrangement.

Last month, NTPC Renewable Energy invited bids for the engineering, procurement, and construction package for 225 MW of grid-connected solar power projects to be set up in the Gujarat State Electricity Corporation renewable energy park at Khavda.
