September 16 is the last date to bid for the plants that shall come up pan India and are to be developed in Capex mode.

The Railway Energy Management Company joint venture created by Indian Railways and engineering consultancy Rites Ltd has invited bids for the development of 400 MW of grid-connected solar generation capacity on the vacant railway land.

Completion period is 420 days for the plants which shall come up pan India. The plants are to be developed in Capex mode.

Bidders are required to deposit bank guarantee of Rs 4,00,000.

Tender documents can be downloaded starting June 20.

Significantly, as reported earlier, Indian Railways has tasked the REMCL with 3 GW of solar power procurement from plants to be set up on vacant Railways land.

Besides tendering, the REMCL shall handle installation supervision and management of power supply from these solar power plants.

The project—REMCL’s largest solar power mandate from Indian Railways—will be divided into three phases of 1 GW each. 

The entire installation is expected to be completed by 2022-23.
