NTPC REL seeks BoS package for 500 MW solar in Rajasthan

NTPC Renewable Energy (NTPC REL) announced that bids were being sought for the balance of the system package (excluding land and transmission system) of a 500 MW state transmission utility (STU)-connected solar power project in Bhadla, Rajasthan.

It was stated that the deadline for submitting bids was May 1, 2024, and bids would be opened on the same day.

The tasks to be performed encompassed design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation, testing, and commissioning of a solar photovoltaic project.

However, it was emphasized that the supply of solar modules, land, and transmission system setup were not included. The cost of bidding documents was mentioned to be $22,500.

It was clarified that the responsibility for providing the land with boundary fencing and establishing the transmission line to the nearest STU substation fell within the scope of NTPC REL.

Furthermore, the winning bidder would be tasked with site preparation, including grading and clearing vegetation, and optionally conducting a topographical survey and geotechnical investigations of the project area.

In addition, it was stated that the bidder was responsible for the design and construction of the foundation and the erection of the Single Axis Tracker-based module mounting structure for solar photovoltaic panels.

The bidder was also required to organise power and water supply for construction purposes and undertake all associated electrical and civil works necessary for interfacing with the grid, including the installation of transformers, panels, protection systems, cables, metering at 33 kV level, and conducting grid compliance studies as per regulations.

It was also mentioned that the bidder would be responsible for supplying and installing appropriate reactive compensation equipment to ensure compliance with dynamic reactive power compensation requirements at the point of interconnection at the STU end.
