SJVN Green Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SJVN, has invited bids for the construction of 132 kV transmission lines, including bays, for its 125 MW Jamui Phase-I solar project and 75 MW Banka solar project in Bihar.

The last date for submission of bids is March 6, 2024.

The scope involves the complete route alignment survey, detailed survey, check survey, soil investigation, optimization of route, preparation of complete bill of quantities, forest clearance if required, design, engineering, supply of materials, transportation, insurance, erection, testing, commissioning, and handing over of the 132 kV/33 kV transmission lines on a turnkey basis.

The bid security is ₹74.56 million (~$898,000), and the bid document fee is ₹5,900 (~$71). The completion period is nine months.

Bidders should have executed a single 132 kV or above voltage class transmission line of at least 20 km route length as an engineering, procurement, and construction contractor in the last seven years.

Bidders should also have supplied, erected, and commissioned at least one 132 kV or above voltage level air-insulated switchgear circuit breaker bay in the last seven years.

The average annual turnover of the bidders should be ₹112 million (~$1.35 million) for the last three financial years. Their net worth should be positive in the last financial year, with two out of the last three financial years being positive.

Recently, SJVN Green invited bids to select developers to set up 1,500 MW of interstate transmission system-connected wind and solar hybrid power projects in India.

In January, SJVN secured a ₹100 billion (~$1.2 billion) construction financing facility to fund its upcoming renewable energy projects in a first-of-its-kind transaction by a public sector undertaking.
