Adani Transmission bags second package of REC reverse auction

Electric power transmission major Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL) has won the auction for the second package of Madhya Pradesh’s intra-state electricity transmission infrastructure project.

In the reverse auction held by REC Ltd, Adani Transmission placed a levelised tariff bid of Rs 132.65 crore, the lowest among the four bidders. Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) bid at Rs 146.3 crore, the highest among the bidders, including Dilip Buildcon and Sterlite Grid Twenty-Eight.

In a regular tender, a seller puts up an item, and buyers place bids until the close of the auction, at which time the item goes to the highest bidder. In reverse tenders, sellers bid for the prices at which they are willing to sell their goods and services. In a reverse tender, the buyer puts up a request for required goods or services. Sellers then place bids for the amount they are willing to be paid for the goods or services, and at the end of the auction, the seller with the lowest amount wins.

Last week, Adani Transmission had the first package of the same tender at a levelised tariff bid of Rs 142.98 crore. Power Grid Corporation had bid at Rs 159.86 crore, higher than Sterlite Grid 12 and Dilip Buildcon, the two other bidders.
