BHEL Hopes Karnataka Agrees To Buy Power So It Can Get Part Of NTPC Solar Tender

Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL)is favoured to win part of NTPC’s tender to set up 750 MW solar park at Pavagada in Karnataka’s Tumkur district but its fate hinges on the power generator’s ability to sign purchase agreement with the home state and other buyers, according to an official familiar with the development. The entire process may fall through, at least for the time being, if the power producer is unable to sew up a pact with the state’s distribution utility and other buyers, he said.

The said park comprises six blocks of 125 MW each with the booty being split amongst the top three bidders. If the power purchase agreement is signed, BHEL is certain to get two blocks at least totaling 250 MW capacity. The other bidders, if they agree to match BHEL’s quote, will get to share the rest of the blocks.

The scope of work would include design, engineering, manufacture, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of solar modules and cells. Read More…
