    NTPC bids for the Supply of EV Chargers under FAME II

    NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN) has issued an invitation for bids for the supply of electric vehicle (EV) chargers for the public charging infrastructure in cities under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME II) program.

    The scope includes manufacturing or sourcing, testing, inspection, supply, installation, and commissioning of 1,670 EV chargers in 267 charging stations across Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

    The scope of work also includes providing three years of comprehensive on-site warranty for all chargers and an additional seven years of comprehensive on-site maintenance services for all the chargers except Bharat AC 001 and Bharat DC 001 chargers under the annual maintenance contract.

    The last day to submit the bids is June 8, 2022. Bids will be opened the next day.

    Bidders must pay ₹22,500 (~$290) towards the cost of bidding documents and furnish an earnest money deposit of ₹10 million (~$128,899).

    Bidders should have manufactured, supplied, and installed off-board EV DC chargers with a cumulative capacity of at least 50 kW. At least one such EV DC charger should be 15 kW or above before the date of techno-commercial bid opening.

    The procurement is proposed under a single package, with a provision of splitting the quantities between the lowest bidder (L1) and the next lowest bidder (L2) in the ratio of 60:40, subject to the L2 bidder matching the L1 bidder’s prices.

    Bidders can also be subsidiaries or holding companies that have manufactured, supplied, and installed off-board EV DC chargers of cumulative capacity of at least 50kW. At least one such EV DC charger should be 15kW or above before the date of techno-commercial bid opening.

    Bidders must have an average annual turnover of ₹220 million (~$2.83 million) during the preceding three completed financial years as of the date of techno-commercial bid opening. The net worth of the bidders as of the last day of the preceding financial year should not be less than 100% of their paid-up share capital.

    The Ministry of Heavy Industries recently approved 2,877 EV charging stations in 68 cities across 25 states and union territories under the FAME-II program.

    The Bureau of Energy Efficiency invited bids to hire agencies to develop energy benchmarking for EVs and EV chargers to estimate the impact of EV chargers on the grid.
