The successful bidder will have to furnish a performance bank guarantee of Rs 2 million per MW (inclusive of 18 per cent GST) at the time of signing the power purchase agreement (PPA).

Only certified wind turbine models listed in the Revised List of Models and Manufacturers (RLMM) prepared by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) will only be allowed.

Up to 500 MW of additional capacity through the greenshoe option will be offered to the successful bidders, who are willing to execute PPAs with GUVNL at the lowest tariff (L1 rate) s to the extent of their respective quoted capacity or higher quantum to the extent of greenshoe capacity.

Bidders should ensure pre-bid original equipment manufacturer and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) tie-ups with not less than three manufacturers for the design, engineering, supply, procurement, construction, and operation and maintenance.

The bidder’s net worth should not be less than Rs 12 million per MW of the quoted capacity as of the last day of the previous financial year. The net worth will be the cumulative net worth of the bidding company or consortium together with the networth of those affiliates of the bidder.
