The company had to extend the bid submission deadline for its 1.2 GW solar tender in western India after an upper tariff cap set by the NTPC failed to attract bidders.

Moreover, the NTPC has retendered and invited fresh bids for a 20 MW floating solar project. The project is to be established at the reservoir of NTPC Auraiya Gas Power Project at Dibiyabpur in Uttar Pradesh.

A few weeks ago, the NTPC also issued a tender inviting application from eligible vendors for the enlistment of engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) bidders to develop floating or ground-mounted solar PV projects between 10-50 MW capacity.
