At around 3 pm on 16-02-2013, APTRANSCO announced the list of 184 bidders who participated in Andhra Pradesh Solar bidding. Subsequently, APTRANSCO announced that the same list may also be accessed by logging into the e-procurement website. In order to make it easy for everyone (those who have participated and those who haven’t) to check  out the bidders list, we are posting the list here.

Here’s the list of bidders:

AP Solar Bidding - List of bidders

[On 5th March, 2013, APTRANSCO announced the list of qualified/disqualified bidders during the Commercial Bid opening. Check APTRANSCO document here for more details. It was also announced that 3 new companies - - have been accepted into the bidding.]

We have conducted an in-depth analysis based on the data collected from the information available on e-Procurement website. Here’s a brief summary of the analysis of the bids:

  • 184 bidders participated in the bidding [3 existing bidders disqualified after technical evaluation and 3 new bidders have been allowed]
  • In all, 330 bids were submitted by the 184 bidders
  • A cumulative capacity of 1712 MW was bid for by the various bidders 
  • As many as 40 locations have no bidders at all
  • As many as 45 locations received only 1 bid i.e. no competition
  • The highest cumulative capacity bid by a single bidder was 170 MW by ACME Tele power Ltd. followed by Tesla Projects at 95 MW
  • The maximum number of bids submitted by a single bidder was 25 (ACME Tele power Ltd.)
  • Alair, Ramannapet, Zaheerabad and Sadasivpet are the locations (132/33 KV substation node) that received the highest number of bids (atleast 8 bids each)

Important to Note: To puts things in perspective, it is to be noted that the capacity of 1712 MW for which bids have been received includes several cases where 2 or more bids have been submitted for the same location. Also, only 121 of the 161 locations have been bid for and 40 haven’t been bid for at all. Therefore, the capacity of 1712 MW does not essentially mean that bids for over and above the available capacity have been received. Here’s a table that depicts the total available capacities of the locations bid for and unbid for.

Available Capacity of bid for and unbid for locations

As per the above table, the locations for which bids have been submitted have been allocated a total capacity of 920 MW only by APTRANSCO. Among the 121 locations bid for, there is a possibility that the capacities bid for in these locations may not actually lead to complete fill up of capacity. Hence, it can be assumed that a maximum of 920 MW (not 1712 MW) may be filled up if APTRANSCO intends to fill up the capacities in the locations bid for. Whether or not a new tender would be released for the unfilled capacity of remaining locations is something we will have to wait and watch.
