Anywhere in the globe, bidders must be recognized as established designers, developers, manufacturers, or system integrators of floating solar projects by producing and integrating floating platforms and module mounting structures for projects that are ideally MW-scale.

The project will be built under a build-own-operate strategy for a period of 25 years. Surveying, evaluating the potential, and building grid-connected floating solar projects are included in the scope of work. 

Additionally, the developers will be in charge of the operation, maintenance, and potential evacuation of electricity as well as the preparations for its transmission up to the closest substation or pooling station selected by KSEB.

Out of the total capacity, at least 10 MW of ground-mounted and rooftop solar systems with proven contracting of floating solar technology or 100 KW of floating solar systems must have been operational for at least one month prior to the bid opening date.

The bidders are required to have a net worth of Rs. 100 million or a three-year cumulative yearly turnover of Rs. 500 million. Every partner or group of partners in a joint venture or consortia must adhere to the turnover norms.
