April 17 (Renewables Now) - The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) is looking for parties willing to add 100 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity for state-owned coal mining group Singareni Collieries Co Ltd in the state of Telangana.
SECI issued a notice of interest (NIT) under a tender for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services on Tuesday. The scope of work will include the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of the PV capacity under different packages and also includes operation and maintenance (O&M) services for 10 years.
Tender documents for the project will be available on SECI’s website on April 22, 2019.
Last summer, SECI opened an EPC tender for 150 MW of solar projects for Singareni Collieries, which came after local media earlier reported that the coal miner aimed to step in the solar sector by tendering 300 MW of PV capacity, which would be added at four locations within Telangana’s coal mining belt.
