first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Mercom India:The Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) has issued a tender for the development of 160 MW of solar-wind hybrid power project with battery energy storage system (BESS) at Ramagiri, located in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.The scope of work includes the design, engineering, supply, construction, installation, testing, and commissioning of the projects. Apart from these, the successful bidder will also be responsible for 10 years of operations and maintenance (O&M) services.The project is being developed under the ‘Innovation in Solar Power and Hybrid Technologies Project’ and SECI has applied for financing from the World Bank. A part of the grant will go towards the Ramagiri project.Of late, hybrid tenders as well as tenders coupled with BESS component have gained traction in the country.The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) recently announced a new wind-solar hybrid policy that aims to provide a framework for the expansion of grid-connected wind-solar hybrid systems in the country. The ministry later amended the policy to remove the word ‘battery’ from the relevant clauses in order to broaden the definition of the term “storage” and facilitate the growth of the sector. In its notification, the ministry said that it realizes that initially the word ‘storage’ was defined only in terms of battery storage, which restricted other forms of storage such as pumped hydro, compressed air, and flywheel.More: SECI issues 160 MW solar-wind hybrid tender with battery energy storage system India seeks bids for solar-wind-battery systemlast_img
