(c) For a total capacity of 300 MW, the EMD is ₹129 million (~$1.5 million)
Bidders should have executed grid-connected wind power projects on an engineering, procurement, and construction basis with a cumulative capacity of 30 MW or higher.
At least one project should have a capacity of 10 MW or higher and be operational for a minimum of six months before the tender issuance.
Alternatively, bidders should be grid-connected wind power project developers with a cumulative installed capacity of 30 MW or higher. At least one plant should have a capacity of 10 MW or higher, executed under a single letter of award (LOA) or for a single project, and operational for a minimum of six months before the tender issuance.
Bidders should have manufactured/supplied wind turbine generators (WTG) with a cumulative capacity of 30 MW or higher. The bidder should have an LOA/order for the supply of WTGs for a single project with a cumulative capacity of 10 MW or higher.
Additionally, they should have erected/supervised erection and commissioned/supervised commissioning of grid-connected wind projects with a cumulative installed capacity of 30 MW or higher. At least one plant should have a capacity of 10 MW or higher, executed under a single LOA or for a single project, and operational for a minimum of six months.
Bidders should have an annual average turnover for the last three financial years as follows:
₹2.58 billion (~$30.9 million) for 100 MW (Project-I), ₹5.16 billion (~$61.9 million) for 200 MW (Project-II), and ₹7.74 billion (~$92.9 million) for 300 MW (both Projects)
Bidders must have a positive net worth on the last day of the preceding Financial Year.
Recently, SJVN Green Energy emerged as one of the successful bidders in SECI’s auction of 1.2 GW of ISTS-connected wind power projects (Tranche XIV).
Earlier, MNRE had designated SJVN as the implementing agency responsible for floating tenders for renewable energy projects. It will also act as the intermediary procurer of power and work with other agencies to avoid concurrent bids.
