India's largest utility NTPC has tendered for 1GW of grid-connected solar capacity under the Develop Build Demonstrate Transfer (DBDT) programme.

The contract includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning of the capacity on a turnkey basis. Cells and modules can be sourced under open category and projects can be located anywhere in India.

The minimum capacity for a single bidder is 50MW (going up in multiples of 10MW) and the maximum capacity is 300MW.

The deadline for bid submissions is 18 November 2019.

Back in September, NTPC issued an enlistment tender for the supply of Balance of System (BoS) package for its PV projects. Meanwhile, in August the utility also issued a tender to set up 1.2GW of interstate transmission system (ISTS) connected solar projects.
