The Central Public Works Department (CPWD) has issued a request for proposals for the installation of 1.65 MW of grid-connected rooftop and ground-mounted solar systems at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) in Berhampur, Odisha.
The project must be finished in 9 months. The anticipated cost of the project is 110.86 million.
The last date for submitting proposals online is June 21, 2022, and on the same day, bids will be opened.
The scope of work comprises rooftop solar and ground-mounted system design, engineering, and getting a no-objection certificate from the distribution company (DISCOM) for grid connectivity, erection, supply, manufacturing, construction, related civil works, and testing and commissioning.
