The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) is seeking proposals from potential designers (project proponents) for the construction of ground-mounted and floating solar PV nuclear power plant with an integrated capacity of 30 MW on a build-own-operate basis with a 20-year operational period.

The due date for proposal submissions is October 27, 2022.

Within 10 months of the power acquisition agreement's signing, the project should be ended up (PPA). Bidders are called for to offer a proposal down payment of LKR3 million/MW. Within one month of getting the notice of honor, the selected bidder has to offer LKR 22 million as an efficiency security deposit.

Any government organisation in Sri Lanka, consisting of CEB, need to not have blacklisted or put on hold bidders or their associated companies, regardless of whether they were a specific service provider, a firm, a joint venture, or a consortium member.

As part of the project's scope, the project designer will certainly be needed to assess the ecological impacts of the recommended solar power projects and also protect all necessary ecological clearances and approvals from the relevant authorities by Central Environmental Authority laws.

The project's solar modules should comply with all relevant international criteria (IEC 61215, IEC 61730, or the most recent available equivalent requirements). International criteria (IEEE 1547:2003/ UL 1741, IEC 62109) ought to also be complied with by inverters.

The modern technology that was suggested for the project should certainly have actually revealed success in nations with a similar degree of facilities assistance as well as technological advancement as Sri Lanka.

The supplied equipment must be brand-new and also unopened. Any power project attached to the Sri Lankan electrical grid should follow CEB requirements, as mentioned in the "CEB Guide for Grid Interconnection of Embedded Generators, Sri Lanka (2000 )." This policy puts on all equipment and also project layout.

For solar power projects, the project business must acquire land with a 3 acre/MW degree. The required land area must be figured out based on the aforementioned ratio for bigger capacities.
