Bangladesh seeks EPC for 68 MW solar park

The bid, which includes the construction of a 15km 132 kV double circuit transmission line with substation bay extension, has been launched by the Bangladesh China Renewable Energy Company Ltd (BCPCL), a joint venture between Bangladesh’s North-West Power Generation Company Limited (NWPGCL) and the China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CMC).

The 68 MW PV project is part of a cooperation between Bangladesh and China to install 450 MW of solar capacity and a 50 MW wind farm in Bangladesh. China is expected to invest around US$500 million in the projects.

According to the tender documents, bidders must have had a minimum average annual turnover of $100 million within the last three years. Their financial resources less their financial obligations for their current contract commitments must meet or exceed the total requirement of $30 million.

Bidders should also possess at least seven year’s relevant experience prior to the bid submission date and have worked on at least two PV projects of 50 MW (AC) or larger outside of Bangladesh within the past five years.
