Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (Mahagenco) has invited expressions of interest (EOI) for setting up a solar manufacturing plant in the Indian state, using any type of cells and modules.

The integrated factory will be located on land provided by Mahagenco. The company wants the facility to provide solar equipment for at least 50-60% of its 2,500MW solar requirement.

The prospective manufacturers will be allowed to form joint ventures or consortiums with Mahagenco. Existing manufacturers of solar cells and modules, who intend to set up integrated facilities and are planning to expand their capacity, will also be eligible to bid under this scheme.

Mahagenco will shortlist bidders for the project based on technical and financial feasibility, the bidder’s technical and financial capability, and the bidders' offered percentage in the project to Mahagenco.

The deadline for EOI submissions is 29 September this year.

Mahagenco has the highest overall generation capacity and the highest thermal installed capacity amongst all the state power generation utilities in India. In terms of installed capacity, it is the second highest generation company after state-run giant NTPC.
