Hindustan Salts Ltd invites bids for 100 MW solar plant at Kharaghoda in Gujarat

Ahmedabad: Surendranagar district based Hindustan Salts Limited, a government-owned company established for salt extraction in the region, has invited bids to develop a 100 MW solar PV project in Kharaghoda, Gujarat, India.

As reported by Mercom Capital, the project will be developed on a revenue sharing model, as all the power generated by the facility will be sold into the market.

With June 5 as the submission deadline, the successful bidder will be expected to provide both EPC and O&M for the project for a 25-year period.

Meanwhile, Hindustan Salts will arrange the PPA with authorized government bodies, and provide land for the project. Once the contract is awarded, the project completion timeframe will be 180 days.

Earlier this year, the company’s subsidiary Sambhar Salts Limited invited expressions of interest to develop a 100 MW solar project in Sambhar, Rajasthan, on a revenue sharing basis.
