According to the bid documents, the projects will be developed on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis, and the successful bidders will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the projects. The power generated from the projects will be sold to WBSEDCL for a period of 25 years.
The projects will be located at three different sites in West Bengal, with a capacity of 50 MW each. The first site is located in the district of Purba Medinipur, the second site in Paschim Medinipur, and the third site in Bankura.
The tender requires the wind-solar hybrid projects to have a minimum capacity of 25 MW, with a maximum capacity of 50 MW. The projects must be connected to the nearest substation of WBSEDCL through a 132-kV transmission line.
The tender submission deadline is March 31, 2023, and the projects are expected to be commissioned within 18 months from the date of signing the power purchase agreement (PPA).
The tender document mentions particularly about already commenced projects will not be considered.

An individual developer can bid for a minimum range of 50 MW up to a maximum range of 150 MW interconnected at the delivery point.
