A total of nine companies have submitted the technical bids for development of the 1,200 MW ISTS-connected wind power capacity tendered by SECI in August 2018, under its Tranche V. These include ReNew Wind Power Private Lim ited (300 MW), SITAC RE Private Limited (300 MW), Alfanar (300 MW), Mytrah Energy Limited (300 MW), Adani group (300 MW), Continuum Wind Energy Private Limited (200 MW), Hero Future Energies Private Limited (200 MW), Torrent Wind Power (115 MW) and Ecoren Energy (175 MW). The tender has been oversubscribed by an aggregate capacity of 2,190 MW.
|Developer||Bid capacity (MW)|
|ReNew Wind Power||300|
|Continuum Wind Energy||200|
|Hero Future Energies||200|
|Torrent Wind Power||115|
The projects will be developed on BOO-basis and the successful bidders will enter into 25-year PPAs with SECI. The scope of work includes setting up of the wind power projects as well as the transmission network up to the delivery point.
Due to unavailability of adequate transmission connectivity, and thus low developer interest, SECI had cancelled its 2 GW Tranche-V ISTS-connected wind tender for which bids had been invited in May 2018. Later, SECI had modified its 2.5 GW wind tender under Tranche-VI, and had then retendered 1.2 GW of capacity under Tranche-V.
