Bidders will have to submit ₹9,306 (~$116) as an earnest money deposit.

The work must be completed within 45 days from the seventh day of the issuance of the Letter of Award.

Preference will be given to ‘Class-I local suppliers’ over ‘Class-II local suppliers’ and ‘non-local suppliers.’

‘Class-I local supplier’ means a supplier or service provider whose goods, services, or works offered have local content equal to or greater than 50%. Similarly, for ‘Class-II local suppliers,’ the local content should be more than 20% and less than 50%. ‘Non-local suppliers’ are suppliers with local content equal to or less than 20%.

Alternatively, they should have completed one similar work with a capacity not less than 20 MW of wind power, or two similar works, each with a capacity of 13 MW of wind power, or three similar works, each with a capacity of 10 MW of wind power during the last seven years.

Bidders should have achieved a minimum annual financial turnover of ₹930,000 (~$11,629) in any one of the last three financial years.

They should have made a profit in any two of the last three financial years. Their net worth should be at least 15% of the project’s estimated cost.

If the work is not completed within the stipulated time, the consultant will have to pay an amount equivalent to 1% of the total contract value for each week of delay, subject to a maximum of 5% of the total contract price as liquidated damages.

Recently, REMCL, on behalf of Indian Railways, invited bids to procure 1 GW of round-the-clock  power from grid-connected renewable power projects with or without storage across India for 25 years. The projects will be developed on a build, own, and operate basis.

Earlier, Sembcorp Green Infra Wind Energy had won REMCL’s auction to procure 50 MW of wind power. The tariff-based bidding was held for the power consumption of Railways for traction in Maharashtra.
