RfP for 2 MW capacity Biomass project based on Boiler

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is implementing a MNRE - UNDP/GEF assisted Project on "Removal of Barriers to Biomass Power Generation in India." The aim of the Project is to accelerate the adoption of environmentally sustainable biomass power technologies by removing the barriers identified, thereby laying the foundation for the large scale commercialization of biomass power through increased access to financing.

Under this project MNRE is contemplating to support preparation of Detailed Project Report and Bid Document for establishment of commercial scale projects based on "Hybrid Biomass Solar Thermal (CSP) Technology" for generation of grid connected power through augmentation of already existing biomass power plants. The capacity of such power plants has to be in the range of 2 to 10 MW depending upon the technology deployed, location, economic viability etc.

Project Developers who have responded to the similar EoI advertised on June 2013 need to reconfirm in writing their interest in the project.

Expression of Interest (EOI) is also invited from State Govt. Organizations / Agencies, Independent Power Producers (IPP), Project Developers, and other Investors with existing biomass based power plants for availing technical assistance to support preparation of DPR and bid document for establishment of projects.

MNRE will shortlist 5 existing biomass based power plants for augmentation to biomass solar hybrid projects or an aggregate capacity of about 80 MW, whichever is less, for technical assistance to support preparation of Detailed Project Report and bid document.


Criteria for the Selection of Projects for Technical Assistance:
  • Capacity and location of the proposed project;
  • Present Status and creditworthiness / financial health of the Applicant Company for taking up such projects;
  • Past experience of the Applicant Company in the area of renewable energy, particularly in generation of power from solar and/or biomass;
  • Present status of the project in terms of preparation of pre-feasibility / feasibility report, availability of land required for setting up the project; Policy of State Govts to promote such projects
  • Tie up for supply of solar thermal technology / plant & machinery and /or funding required for establishment of the project;
  • Availability of surplus biomass in the area and proposed fuel supply linkages;
  • Project configuration

Last date for submission of the proposal is 5th December 2014.
