HIMURJA floats a tender for ground-mounted solar installations

The Himachal Pradesh Energy Development Agency (HIMURJA) has issued a request for proposals from Himachal-based enterprises to build ground-mounted solar installations in the state with capacities ranging from 250 kW to 1 MW. The scope of work comprises all stages of the project, from design through commissioning, as well as a feasibility survey and investigation. The bid submission deadline is January 27, 2022.

As per the tender guidelines, the winning bidders must construct the projects on private land that they have purchased or leased. They will be required to provide documents proving ownership of the land or a lease agreement with the landowner where the project will be located. If the land is bought on a lease, the winning bidder will complete the lease process after the project is allocated. The projects must be completed within 12 months of the allocation. The projects do not require any environmental clearances, surveys, or investigations to get commenced.

In May 2021, HIMURJA invited bids to develop 1,700 off-grid solar systems of 250 W capacity each in the premises of individual households in the tribal areas of the state. Developers would be responsible for the design, engineering, manufacture, inspection, verification of the project site. They would also have to carry out the transportation up to the project site, loading and unloading, storage, erection, installation, commissioning, performance testing, and the distribution of the solar systems to the respective beneficiaries.
