India's NTPC launches tender for 1.2GW solar PV projects

The projects will be developed near NTPC switchyards in the Maharashtra region.

India’s National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has launched the tender of 1,200MW of interstate transmission system (ISTS)-connected solar PV projects to be developed in Maharashtra, Mercom India reports. Bid deadline is on 19 December 2018 whilst technical bids will open on 20 December 2018.

The grid-connected solar PV projects will be developed on build own operate (BOO) basis. They will be developed near NTPC switchyards in the western region of Maharashtra.

The scope of work includes the design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation, and commissioning of grid-connected ISTS-connected solar PV projects.

The report adds that NTPC tenders do not come with any fixed upper tariff cap in contrast to SECI’s prevalent policy of imposing tariff caps on tenders. As a result, the company raised interest from developers leading to competitive bids that SECI has been aiming to achieve.
