SECI floats bids for 300 MW solar under CPSU scheme

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has requested domestic proposals to establish a 300 MW (AC) ground-mounted solar photovoltaic plant in Andhra Pradesh’s Ramagiri district. The scope of work for the successful bidder includes design, engineering, supply, building, erection, testing, and commissioning of the solar project. Additionally, it will also offer the plant with five years of operations and maintenance support.

The capacity is being offered under the Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Scheme’s second phase. According to the tender guidelines, solar inverters for the project must be purchased from the ‘Class-I’ local suppliers only.

Recently, in March 2023, SECI floated bids to establish a 100 MW (AC) floating solar photovoltaic project at Getalsud Dam in Jharkhand’s Ranchi district. The project will take 18 months to complete including commissioning after the contract is awarded.

Also, in February 2023, SECI floated bids for a 2 MW solar project in Kaza, Himachal Pradesh, as well as a 1 MW battery energy storage system. The work includes design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing, and commissioning, as well as five years of operation and maintenance.
