The state-owned electrical energy firm, Nepal Electrical energy Authority (NEA) is accepting proposals for the event of 100 MW grid-connected photo voltaic PV initiatives, from impartial energy producers (IPPs) . In 16 particular places throughout the nation within the Himalayas, these initiatives shall be carried out.
NEA will purchase the electrical energy generated by the initiatives and set up a benchmark fee 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 furnish a efficiency safety within the quantity of NPR 600,000/MW.
The initiatives put up for bid have a capability of a minimum of 1 MW, based on NEA. Nonetheless, the capability for this photo voltaic tender in some places can vary from 10 MW to 30 MW.
The initiatives have to be accomplished inside 18 months after the signing of the facility buy settlement (PPA). Nonetheless, if the developer is ready to fee a minimum of 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 a minimum of one grid-connected challenge for a minimum of one yr. They will solely use thin-film modules or crystalline silicon modules.
The transmission line of 11 kV or greater voltage, from the challenge substation to the NEA substation needs to be laid by the developer.
The developer should present particular transmission traces linked to the excessive voltage or low voltage aspect (>=11 kV) of the corresponding substations to hold the vitality generated to the NEA substations.
The land required for the development of the challenge is totally the accountability of the developer, who should additionally present proof that adequate land of a minimum of 0.25 hectares per MW is offered for the event of the challenge.
As well as, the developer should make acceptable preparations to amass any further land that could be required for the set up of kit or different associated actions concerned within the photo voltaic challenge. NEA substation.
To qualify for tender procurement, the bidder should 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 acquire a survey license for manufacturing or a era license issued by the Division of Electrical energy Improvement.
Earlier, India’s state-owned NHPC Restricted signed a memorandum of understanding with vitality 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.
