A feasibility assessment for the construction of a 100-150 MW wind-solar hybrid project with a battery energy storage system (BESS) on undeveloped land at the Anantpuram Solar Park in Andhra Pradesh has been requested by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL).
For this tender, only “Class-I” and “Class-II local suppliers” will be permitted to submit proposals. However, “Class-I local suppliers” will be given preference.
The proposals must be submitted by July 13, 2022, which will be opened on the same day.
The earnest money deposit required to submit by bidders is Rs 200,000. The winning bidder additionally has to submit a composite performance bank guarantee equal to 3% of the project’s cost.
For the three years ending March 31, 2022, the participating bidder shall have shown an average yearly financial turnover of at least Rs 1.8 million.
The bidders must have successfully completed comparable projects in India with a minimum capacity of 50 MW during the preceding 7 years, which must have ended on the last day of the month before the applications’ invitation date.
The aforementioned comparable projects refer to carrying out the techno-commercial feasibility study, project management consultancy, or detailed engineering for developing wind-solar hybrid power projects under open access regulation for client’s self-use or third-party sales, which have been commissioned and are operational.
Within 15 days of the purchase order’s issuance, the consultant is required to deliver a thorough draft report. Seven days later, the consultant has to submit the final feasibility report, which includes all the revisions.
The consultant must research all the choices for technology selection for the planned project development and recommend the optimum solar technology for the specific land site.
The consultant should draft a report on power evacuation that includes an analysis of the current electrical connection to the grid and a comparison of several workable strategies for power evacuation via grid link.
Additionally, on the basis of the site’s solar resource evaluation, the local wind conditions, and technological and design factors, they must also evaluate the proposed hybrid project’s energy output.
Further, they must provide information on all open access fees that will be incurred when moving the solar energy produced at the suggested site to our state consumption location.
