India developer seeks EM equipment bids for 412-MW Rampur

Hydro developer Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Ltd. (SJVN) seeks bids from pre-qualified firms to supply electro-mechanical equipment for the 412-MW Rampur hydroelectric project on the Satluj River in India’s Himachal Pradesh State. Bids are due May 28.

SJVN announced that it ended an ongoing pre-qualification process and re-invited bids from previously pre-qualified bidders.

A loan agreement was signed in January for US$400 million in World Bank funding to build Rampur. (HNN 1/16/08) The run-of-river project is to reuse tailrace waters from SJVN’s 1,500-MW Nathpa Jhakri project to generate 1.77 million kWh annually. SJVN last year awarded a contract to Patel-Gammon JV of India for civil and hydro-mechanical work to build a headrace tunnel.

SJVN seeks equipment including six 68.67-MW vertical Francis turbines and synchronous generators, associated equipment, station auxiliaries, fire protection, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, communication, and 400-kilovolt switchyard.

A pre-bid meeting is scheduled May 1, with bids due at 11 a.m. May 28. SJVN said any subsequent information would be posted on its Internet site, www.sjvnindia.com.
