SECI intends to invite Expression of Interest (EOI) from the prospective floating
Solar PV Plant Developers (FSPDs) for setting up of 10,000 MW of Floating Solar PV
(FSPV) plant capacity in phased manner in the country in next three years. FSPDs selected
through tender to be floated by SECI based on inputs received from the EOI, shall be given
assured off-take of solar power generated from the projects through long term Power
Purchase Agreement (PPA). The details of EOI is as follows:
1. About SECI:
SECI, under the administrative control of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy
(MNRE) is working towards creation of a capacity 100 GW of Solar power plant by 2022.
Currently, it is the implementing agency for installation of Solar projects under NSM Phase
II. It has so far successfully implemented 750 MW-VGF scheme and is currently
implementing 2000 MW and 5000 MW VGF schemes. SECI has also been designated as
the implementing agency / scheme manager for various other solar schemes such as Rooftop
Solar PV Program, Solar Parks, Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects, Solarization of Indo-Pak
Border etc. SECI is also providing project management consultancy services to various
government and non-government organizations for setting up of Solar Power Projects.
2. Background:
In 2009, Government of India has launched National Solar Mission with target of
development of 20,000 MW Solar capacity which was subsequently scaled up to 100,000
MW by 2022. As Solar PV power plant is land intensive an in many States, there are physical
and legal hurdles to aggregate the land for such projects, it is proposed to utilize the large
water spread area available in major reservoirs for installing Solar PV power plants already
certain technologies have been developed in this regard and a few pilots have been installed
in India and elsewhere. Since, India is endowed with large numbers of water bodies and
reservoirs which can be utilized for the installation of floating Solar PV (FSPV) Project, it {pdf=http://seci.co.in/web-data/docs/EOI-10%20GW_%20FSPV.pdf|100%|300|native}is proposed to promote FSPVs to bypass the land constraint and to explore one more

alternative for promoting solar power.
3. Objective of the EOI:
SECI in line with national objectives is committed to rapidly scale up utilization of
solar power generation in the Country. Accordingly, it has been envisaged to develop FSPV
Projects of different sizes with a cumulative capacity of 10,000 MW on pan- India basis in
next three (3) years. SECI through this EOI, intends to collect information about feasibility
of FSPV Projects and prospective developers in the market to enable SECI in formulation
and calling of bids for the selection of FSPV Developers (FSPD) on Build, Own and Operate
Basis.
