Projects on EPC basis
In October last year, SECI issued a tender for awarding EPC contracts for the developing 129 MW solar PV capacity that is spread across different locations of SCCL.
Later, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), a PSU involved in manufacturing of electrical equipment, got the order for the development of 129 MW of solar power projects for Singareni Collieries, on EPC basis. The projects were to be established at four different locations including 50 MW capacity project at Ramagundam, 39 MW project at Yellandu, 30 MW at Manuguru, and 10 MW capacity project at Pegadapally.
Last month, SECI has issued a Request for Selection (RfS) for setting up of 2,000 MW of grid-connected solar PV power projects (Tranche-I) under the second phase of the Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) programme.
