GUVNL plans to procure 3,000 MW thermal power on long term basis

Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) is planning to procure 3,000 MW electricity from thermal power plants by a competitive bidding process on a long-term basis.

For the power procurement from the thermal power plant, the state-run apex power utility has also issued draft bid documents and has sought views and comments from the interested stakeholders.

The electricity will be procured from the existing and new thermal power plants established on a design, build, finance, own, and operate (DBFOO) basis.

These plants use coal allocated under the Union government’s scheme for harnessing and allocating koyala transparently in India's (Shakti) policy for power generation, according to GUVNL.

GUVNL plans to invite bids after obtaining approval to the draft bid document from Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC).

Under the Shakti scheme, Gujarat will start getting coal by 2023. Hence, the commencement of power supply would tentatively start from September 2023, as per the sources.

GUVNL said that the power supply's contract period would be for 15 years. GUVNL will suggest the date of registration and process for bids submission separately once the state-run company secures approval of GERC to the bid documents.

The company plans to invite bids for electricity procurement from the thermal power plants. In 2010, it had last sought bids from thermal power producers, according to the sources.
