The scope of work includes the design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, storage, civil work, erection, testing and commissioning of the rooftop solar project at Lines 7 and 2A of the Mumbai Metro Rail Project under the Renewable Energy Service Companies (RESCO) model for 25 years. Bidders are also expected to operate and maintain the project in this period.
The RESCO model is a system where the solar project is owned by the developer, and the consumer only pays for the energy generated. Interested bidders are expected to pay a tender security amount of ₹996,000 ($13,968). The last date for the submission of bids is March 26, 2020. The work is expected to be completed within 15 months from the date of issue of the letter of approval (LOA).
