Gujarat's 500 MW Solar Tender Receives Strong Response

The Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited's (GUVNL) tender to purchase power from 500 MW of grid-connected solar projects (Phase XII) in the state has received a good response and has been oversubscribed. The bidders' list includes Ayana Renewable Power, ReNew Power, Aljomaih Energy & Water Company, NTPC, Coal India, Tata Power, Torrent Power, Juniper Green Energy, Sprng Energy, Vector Green, and SJVN, according to Mercom sources. Earlier this year, GUVNL had floated a tender to purchase power from 500 MW of grid-connected solar PV projects to be set up in the state under Phase XII.

Successful bidders are expected to set up the solar PV power projects, including the transmission network up to the delivery point. They must secure all necessary permits and clearances required for setting up the project, including connectivity and land registration. The project must be designed for power delivery at the Gujarat Energy Transmission Company Limited (GETCO). The Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA) will be the nodal agency for implementing the project. The project must be interconnected with the state and central transmission utility substations directly through a dedicated line or a pooling substation of an existing wind farm.
