Indian Railways floats tender for 210 MW solar projects

A joint venture of the Indian Railways and RITES Limited, REMCL, floated a tender to develop 210 MW of grid-connected solar projects on vacant railway land under the Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) category.

The work scope includes engineering, packing, unloading, installation, design, supply, transportation, storage, and commissioning of grid-connected solar projects under the DCR category on vacant railway land parcels on a turnkey basis, along with project maintenance for ten years.

The deadline to submit the bids is October 21, 2021, and on the same day, the bids will be opened.

The bidder must have designed, supplied, erected, commissioned, and supervised the commissioning of at least one solar project of a minimum value of 35% of the offered capacity in MW to participate in the bidding process. The solar reference project must have successfully operated before the bid opening date for at least six years.

In case the bidder proposed more than one package with different capacities, then the bidder should have implemented at least one solar project of at least 35% of the highest capacity among the offered package capacity.

The bidder must have implemented an industrial project either as a developer or as an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor in the last ten years in the area of power, steel, oil and gas, petrochemical, fertilizer, cement, coal mining, including coal handling plant and any other process industry of a value of Rs 38.5 million per MW of the proposed capacity, alternatively. The project must have been operationally successful for at least one year before the opening date of the bidding.

The bidders must have implemented at least one electrical substation of 33 kV or above voltage, either as a developer or as an EPC contractor, consisting of equipment such as 33 kV or above voltage circuit breakers and power transformer, which must have been operationally successful before the opening date of the bid for at least one year.

REMCL floated a tender to develop a 15 MW solar project on railway land at Butibori in Nagpur with a 7 MW/14 MWh battery energy storage system in May.

REMCL published the bidding details for 400 MW of grid-connected solar projects on vacant railway lands in the country earlier last year in June.
