The Tamil Nadu Cements Corporation (TANCEM) has invited bids from consultants to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) to install a 20 MW solar power project at Alangulam Cement Works in Virudhnagar district.

The last date to submit the bids is February 19, 2024. Bids will be opened on the same day.

TANCEM plans to meet the energy requirement of its Alangulam cement plant, with a production capacity of 200,000 tons of cement per annum, with the solar project.

The selected bidder will be tasked with the preparation of a DPR for the installation of the solar project within 30 days from the date of the work order being issued.

The scope of work includes a techno-economic feasibility study, which will outline the feasibility of the land site, the technical feasibility of the solar project at proposed locations, the technical assessment of land, utilities, and technology, and the financial viability of the project.

Only Indian firms that are in operation for at least three years are eligible to submit the tenders.

The eligible bidders must have an average turnover of ₹3 million ($36,144) in the last three financial years. They should also demonstrate experience in project management of ground-mounted solar projects with more than 20 MW capacity, with either one project of ₹4 million ($48,192) or two similar projects of a minimum of ₹2.5 million ($30,120) each.

Only bidders with a net worth reflecting positive growth in the last three years are eligible to participate in the tender.

Last July, the Cement Corporation of India invited bids to install and commission 1MW of grid-connected solar projects at its Bokajan factory in Assam.
