The state-owned electrical energy firm, Nepal Electrical energy Authority (NEA) is accepting proposals for the event of 100 MW of grid-connected photo voltaic PV initiatives, from unbiased energy producers (IPPs) . In 16 particular areas throughout the nation within the Himalayas, these initiatives shall be carried out.
NEA will get the electrical energy generated by the initiatives and set up a benchmark charge of NPR 5.94/kWh.
The deadline for submitting the proposal is February 26, 2023, and on the identical day, the bids shall be revealed.
Bidders should present NPR 400,000/MW as bid safety, together with a bidding doc price of NPR 10,000. As well as, inside 28 days of the issuance of the work order, the chosen bidders are required to supply efficiency safety within the quantity of NPR 600,000/MW.
The initiatives put up for bid have a capability of at the very least 1 MW, in keeping with NEA. Nevertheless, the capability for this photo voltaic tender in some areas can vary from 10 MW to 30 MW.
The initiatives have to be accomplished inside 18 months after the signing of the ability buy settlement (PPA). Nevertheless, if the developer is ready to fee at the very least half of the PPA capability, then it might announce partial commissioning.
Bidders are anticipated to make use of commercially confirmed expertise that has been efficiently utilized in at the very least one grid-connected venture for at the very least one yr. They will solely use thin-film modules or crystalline silicon modules.
The transmission line of 11 kV or greater voltage, from the venture substation to the NEA substation must be laid by the developer.
The developer should present particular transmission strains linked to the excessive voltage or low voltage aspect (>=11 kV) of the corresponding substations to hold the power generated to the NEA substations.
The land required for the development of the venture is completely the duty of the developer, who should additionally present proof that adequate land of at the very least 0.25 hectares per MW is out there for the event of the venture.
As well as, the developer should make applicable preparations to accumulate any further land that could be required for the set up of apparatus or different associated actions related to the photo voltaic venture in NEA substation.
To qualify for tender procurement, the bidder will need to have expertise in growing and commissioning grid-connected solar energy initiatives with a minimal capability of 1 MW or 5 MW grid-connected energy initiatives that aren’t photo voltaic initiatives.
As well as, to construct solar energy initiatives in Nepal, bidders should get hold of a survey license for manufacturing or a technology license issued by the Division of Electrical energy Improvement.
Earlier, India’s state-owned NHPC Restricted signed a memorandum of understanding with power buying and selling options firm PTC India Restricted for the sale of energy generated from the proposed 750 MW West Seti and 450 MW Seti River-6 initiatives in Nepal.
