SECI has offered an amendment to its tender for the selection of SPD to set up a 10 MW grid-connected solar PV power project to be set up in Jaipur.

Rajasthan (Natural Energy News): Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) in its latest notification offered amendments for the selection of Solar Power Developers (SPDs) for its RfS / Tender to set up a 10 MW grid-connected solar PV power project to be set up in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

The major amendment made in the tender documents is the change in the maximum fee payable to project developers through the entire term (25 years) of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The ceiling tariff has been reduced from 3.20 / kWh to 3.14 / kWh, meaning that bidders will now be able to submit bids with a maximum price of 3.14 / kWh, beyond which bids will be disqualified.

The second amendment has been issued in relation to the transmission infrastructure from the project to the grid.

Previously the project should have been connected to the 33kV of 132kV RVPNL grid substation at Bagru, where it is connected to the RVPNL / STU network of 33 / 11kV substations at Bagru (both are about 10KM away from the proposed project location).

Now, this clause reads that the project must be connected to the 33kV of the 33kV / 220kV RIICO grid substation at Bagru, where it connects to the RVPNL / STU network.

In addition, the nodal agency has stated that the transmission line can be constructed through NHAI route or RIICO industrial area route. Some patches of the RIICO industrial area route may require under-ground cabling where an overhead transmission line is not possible.

Similarly, each block of the project must be designed for interconnection with the desired substation at a single point on the voltage level of the 33kV / 220kV RIICO grid substation located in Bagru.

Recently, we had reported that SECI has extended the deadline for submission of bids for this tender. The bid submission deadline (both online and offline bids) was extended to August 7, 2020, and the techno-commercial bids will now be opened on the new bid submission deadline, August 7, 2020.

According to RfS, the project will be set up on build, own, operate (BOO) / RESCO mode and solar power developers and the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) will enter into a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for sale.
