MSEDCL seeks bids for 500 MW of wind-solar hybrid power

Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co (MSEDCL) has invited bids for the procurement of 500 MW of wind-solar hybrid power on a long-term basis from grid-connected intrastate projects.

The last date to submit the bids is November 10, 2022.
Bidders will have to submit Rs 300,000 ($3,678) as a processing fee and Rs 500,000 ($6,131)/MW/project as earnest money deposit. The selected bidder must furnish Rs 1 million ($12,263)/MW as a performance bank guarantee seven days before signing the agreement.

MSEDCL will enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the selected bidders to purchase wind-solar hybrid power for 25 years from the project’s scheduled commercial operation date.

The intrastate wind-solar hybrid projects under construction, projects which are not yet commissioned, and projects already commissioned but not having any long-term PPA with any agency may be considered if the projects are not already accepted under any other central or state programmes.

The minimum bid capacity of a single hybrid power project should be 50 MW.

To ensure the quality of wind turbines installed, only type-certified wind turbine models listed in the Revised List of Models and Manufactures as published by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) will be allowed for deployment. Also, the solar modules to be used for the projects should be from the Approved List of Models and Manufacturers issued by MNRE.
