India’s largest power generation company NTPC Ltd has invited bids for battery energy storage system for 8 Megawatt solar project at Chidiyatapu in Andaman and Nicobar islands.

The company, in the tender document, said the scope of work shall cover design, engineering, supply, packaging and forwarding, transportation, unloading, storage, installation, testing, commissioning and grid integration.

NTPC said it intends to finance the subject package through either domestic funding or its own resources. The energy giant had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) last yearfor the setting up 50 MW of solar power projects combined with battery energy storage near Port Blair in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

It had floated two tenders on South Andaman, one of 8 MW at Chidiyatapu and another 17MW PV project located at Manglutan with storage capacity in both the projects.

NTPC has planned capacity addition of about 1,000 MW through renewable resources by 2017 and has already commissioned 310 MW solar PV projects.

The Delhi-headquartered company looks to become a 130 GW company by 2032 with a diversified fuel mix and a 600 billion units company in terms of generation. Including hydro, the company wants share of renewable energy to be 28 per cent.
