The balance of system (BoS) contract for Gujarat's 464.10 MW interstate transmission system (ISTS)-connected wind power projects has been won by Gujarat-based KP Energy, a provider of balance of project solutions for wind projects. NTPC Renewable Energy granted the agreement. Engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) are just a few of the services that the company will offer as part of the contract.
The services include acquiring and transferring the necessary land for the project, providing all necessary equipment for the remaining portions of the project, and offering a variety of unloading, storage, on-site handling, installation, insurance, civil and related construction, grid integration, testing, and commissioning services. For a period of three years, the project will be run and maintained by KP Energy.
The project must be finished within 21 months of when the no-objection certificate was issued. In January of this year, NTPC Renewable Energy announced a call for bids for a BoS package of 1,000 MW capacity ISTS-connected wind power plants located anywhere in Gujarat. The project must be adaptable to the installation of wind turbine generators with a capacity of 2.7 MW or more, according to this requirement. The Revised List of Models and Manufacturers published by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy must be used to choose these turbine generators.
In order to demonstrate the guaranteed performance standards, KP Energy will be in charge of the 33 kV internal evacuation lines from the unit substation, the pooling substation, the central monitoring and control station, the wind monitoring masts and the external EHV transmission line until the ISTS substation.
Aditya Birla Group placed a $26.69 million deal with KP Energy in September 2022 for the development of wind farms in Bhungar and Fulsar in the Gujarati district of Bhavnagar. For the BoS package to create 1,200 MW (4 X 300 MW) of solar power projects at the Khavda renewable park in Gujarat, NTPC Renewable Energy had issued an invitation for bids. The range of activities covered solar power project design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, and commissioning.
