India’s largest utility NTPC has issued a tender for the development of a 15MW ground-mount solar PV project at its own Kayamkulam thermal power plant in the state of Kerala using local content rules.

The tender comes under the Domestic Content Requirement (DCR), mandating solar equipment to be sourced locally.

The tender is for the design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, packing and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation and commissioning of the project on a turnkey basis. This includes O&M for a period of 15 years.

The deadline for receipt of technical bids will be 5 December this year.

NETRA (NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance), the R&D arm of NTPC, installed a 100kW floating solar plant at Kayamkulam in March.

Just last week, NTPC also tendered 225MW of solar using DCR rules at Billhaur in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
