The Solar Energy Corporation of India’s (SECI’s) tender for setting up of 70 MW grid-connected solar PV (SPV) power project at Amguri Solar Park in Assam will be closed on May 22, 2018.
In February 2018, SECI had invited bids for selection of solar power developers for the installation of 70 MW SPV project in a single capacity in Assam.
Further, the MNRE-backed SECI had released this tender on behalf of Assam Power Generation Corporation Ltd (APGCL).
This Amguri Solar Park project is to be developed on “Build Own Operate” (B-O-O) basis.
Also, the government shall enter into the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the successful bidder for purchase of solar power for the next 25 years based on the terms, conditions and provisions of the Request for Selection (RfS) document.
Moreover, the power procured by SECI from this project has been provisioned to be sold to the state DISCOM i.e. Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL).
For the above project, the maximum tariff payable to the project developer is fixed at Rs 3.43/ kWh for 25 years.
