Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has issued a notice inviting tender for rectification work of the 50 MW Ramagundam solar power project site at Singareni Collieries in Telangana.
The scope of work includes rectification work for series strings and termination in string monitoring boxes (SMBs), including supply of copper ferrule, heat-shrinkable sleeves, MC4 connectors, and Y connectors. The contractor will also be responsible for acquiring all the necessary raw materials and assuring the safety of all the workers during the rectification work.
The bidder must submit an earnest money deposit (EMD) of ₹29,110 (~$384). The successful bidder will have to submit 3% of the contract value as a security deposit.
The last day to submit the bid is March 8, 2022. The bids will be opened on the same day.
The duration of the contract is for two months from the date of award of contract. If mutually agreed upon, the parties may extend the contract period. The work must be completed within 45 days of receiving the work order. All maintenance works must conclude within 30 days from the project completion date.
The minimum average annual turnover of the bidder for the last three financial years ending March 31, 2021, should be ₹515,247 (~$6,805).
In the last seven years, the bidder must have completed operation and maintenance, electrical installation and commissioning, or repair works of power projects in India.
If two or more bidders quote the lowest bid, the selection of the successful bidder will be on the basis of a lottery, held in the presence of representatives of the bidders. Evaluation of this tender will be done on a total package basis, i.e., the tender will not be split.
At least 50% of the required security deposit, including the EMD, will be collected before starting the work. Balance of the security deposit will be collected by deducting 10% of the gross amount progressively from each of the running bills of the bidder until the total amount of the required security deposit is collected.
In December 2021, BHEL had invited bids from original equipment manufacturers to enter into a memorandum of understanding to supply 42,000 metric tons of module mounting structures.
