Hindustan Petroleum invites bids for solar project in Gujarat

Energy major Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has invited bids from consultants for a detailed feasibility study to set up a solar project on vacant land available in Gujarat.

HPCL intends to develop the project at Ankleshwar. It aims to use the power produced at its functioning locations in Gujarat according to the state’s open access regulations and solar policy.

The deadline to present the proposals is 5th October 2021.

The scope of work covers evaluating solar resources available on the proposed land and examining several options available for technology selection. It also involves the estimation of power production from the planned solar project.

The feasibility report should recognise the injection points and cover the power evacuation program’s schematic block diagram. The feasibility report should study consumption patterns at HPCL’s operating areas. The study should recommend the solar capacity that can be allotted under open access.

The feasibility study should render the project’s cost assessments, comprising detailed bill of quantities, financial modelling for the planned projects, payback period, per-unit energy generation cost, capital cost requirement, and year-wise maintenance cost.

The successful bidder will have to provide 1% of the total contract value as a security deposit within 15 days from the intimation of the acceptance of the bid.

Only Class-I and Class-II local suppliers will be qualified to take part in the bidding process. The minimum local content to be eligible as a Class-I local supplier is 50% and 20% for Class-II. Non-local suppliers are not qualified to take part in this bidding process.

HPCL has said that no part of the job can be sub-contracted directly or indirectly to any company.

Many oil majors in the nation are initiating their foray into solar space. Recently, Indian Oil Corporation Limited floated tenders to empanel vendors to set up solar projects at its locations and retail outlets across India.

Earlier, HPCL had invited bids for installing a 2 MW (AC) solar project under Phase- II of its Green Research and Development Centre in Bengaluru. The scope of work involved constructing, testing, supplying, engineering, designing, transporting, inspecting, procuring, fabricating and commissioning the project.
