Jharkhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (JREDA) has invited bids to select an agency for conducting a topographical survey, geotechnical investigation, and hydrological study for the upcoming 80 MW solar park at Deoghar, Simdega, Palamu, and Garhwa in Jharkhand.

The land area to be covered at all four locations is 100 acres each.

The last date to submit the bids online is March 28, 2022. Bids will be opened on March 30.

The project must be completed within three months.

Interested bidders will have to submit ₹64,000 (~$844) as an earnest money deposit.

The successful bidder will have to submit a security deposit at 10% of the allotted work order value valid for one year on or before 15 days from the issuance of the work order.

The bidder should have completed three similar works of value not less than 40% of the estimated project cost or two similar works of value not less than the 50% of the project cost or one similar work of value not less than 80% of the project cost for any government organization or public sector undertaking during the last seven years.

The bidder’s average annual financial turnover on the last three financial years should be at least ₹1 million (~$13,183).

The bidder should have a positive net worth as of the last day of the previous financial year.

Consortium, associations, and sub-contractors will not be allowed to participate in this tender.

If the agency fails to deliver the work and fulfill its obligations in time under the contract, it will be liable to pay JREDA at 0.5% per week, subject to a maximum of 10% of work value delayed beyond the contract period.

Last month, state-owned hydro and thermal power generator Damodar Valley Corporation invited bids from consultancy firms for a detailed topographical and contour survey of 200 acres to develop solar projects in and around thermal power stations across the valley area.
