Will seek online bids for the ultra mega thermal plant planned in AP

NTPC Ltd will initiate the process of identifying a consultant for the proposed 4,000 MW (4 x 1,000 MW) ultra mega thermal power project at Pudimadaka near Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh.

The State-owned power company had earlier inked a memorandum with the Andhra Pradesh Government to set up the power plant at an estimated outlay of ₹20,000 crore after securing fuel linkages.

NTPC has invited consultancy packages for detailed pre-award and post-award engineering activities for the project, which recently received a boost with the Union Power Ministry backing it as a part of the ‘Power For All Scheme’ in Andhra Pradesh.

Power for States

To take forward this initiative backed by the Central and State Governments, NTPC will invite online bids from eligible bidders.

These will include a techno-commercial bid and a price bid for pre- and post-award engineering.

The pre-award activities include finalisation of basic design, review of report prepared by NTPC and interface with the Environment Impact Assessment agency.

Then the consultant is to carry out hydrological and other studies. The chosen bidder is expected to assist in technical bid evaluation as well.
