Durgapur Projects (DPL) has issued a notice inviting tender for consultants to undertake a feasibility study and prepare a detailed project report to install a green ecosystem. The ecosystem will include green hydrogen, carbon capture, and e-methanol production units in Durgapur, West Bengal.
The project must be completed within 60 days from the letter of award. The inception report must be submitted within 30 days of the work order and the draft feasibility report within 45 days. The final feasibility report must be submitted within seven days of receiving feedback from Durgapur Projects.
The last day to submit the bids is June 27, 2022. Bids will be opened on June 30.
Bidders must furnish an earnest money deposit of ₹68,000 (~$875). Successful bidders must submit a security deposit equivalent to 10% of the total project cost.
The scope of work includes conducting the feasibility study, defining the scope of utilization of green hydrogen and e-methanol, submitting capital expenditure and operational expenditure estimations, studying the potential demand of green hydrogen and e-methanol, identifying demand from target industries for both products, transportation study of green hydrogen and e-methanol, and project implementation strategy and time frame for project completion.
The project is divided into mandatory jobs and optional jobs. Bidders must quote for both parts. The successful bidder will be selected based on the total cost quoted for both parts.
Bidders should have undertaken engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects, either directly or as sub-vendors in green hydrogen, carbon capture, or e-methanol units. Alternatively, they should have prepared a detailed project report for green hydrogen or carbon capture or e-methanol units, either as a direct consultant or sub-consultant.
Bidders must have experience executing three similar works, each costing not less than ₹1.36 million (~$17,515), two similar works each not less than ₹1.7 million (~$21,894), or one similar completed work of ₹2.72 million (~$35,035) during the last seven years.
The successful bidder will not be eligible to participate in the tender for the future EPC part of the project.
The bidders should have an annual turnover of ₹1.02 million (~$13,138) during the three last consecutive years. Their net worth should be positive for the last three financial years.
In April, Durgapur Projects issued a notice inviting tender for the EPC and module manufacturing for 20 MW of grid-connected solar projects at its thermal power station.
