Power Company of Karnataka Limited (PCKL), a special purpose vehicle (SPV) of Government of Karnataka (GoK), is planning to undertake the construction of a coal based thermal power plant in Karnataka, India.
The project involves the construction of a 1,320MW coal based super critical thermal power plant. It will include the construction of a coal washing unit, a water transmission pipeline, raw water storage tanks, switch yard for power evacuation, a powerhouse and a substation, the installation of turbines, generators, and transformers and the laying of transmission lines.
In August 2007, PCKL has invited request for qualification (RFQ) for the Gulbarga Thermal Power Project on a build, own and operate (BOO) basis with submission deadline on July 14, 2010 and shortlisted 11 bidders. However, PCKL has failed to receive any proposals in the later stage of bidding (request for proposal (RFP) stage).
On June 17, 2008, PCKL has submitted an application to the coal ministry for allocation of 6.3 metric tonnes per annum domestic coal for 25 years.
On May 28, 2010, PCKL has floated modified RFQ invitation for the Gulbarga Thermal Power Project on a build, own and operate (BOO) basis. It has shortlisted 22 bidders in RFQ stage which includes 11 bidders from previous notification.
In July 2010, PCKL has called for price proposals, however, the RFP was not responsive, since the coal allocation to the project was not secured by PCKL.
On October 25, 2010, PCKL has applied for Environmental clearances from the Ministry of Environment and Forest.
PCKL has refloated the RFQ tenders in May 2012 following directions from Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC).
In June 2013, PCKL has shortlisted 16 companies who have evinced interest for the financial bid of the project, with the submission deadline as October 23, 2013. However, even in the second call, bidders were non responsive and was reluctant to submit their proposal.
Tata Power, GMR Energy Limited, Jindal Power Ltd, Shree Cement Limited, GVK Industries Ltd, Adani Power Ltd and Reliance were among others who qualified to participate in the final bids but failed to submit financial bids as there was no coal allocation.
In March 2014, the Coal Ministry of India has allocated a coal linkage for the project. PCKL has then decided to float fresh RFQ for the project. However, it is not yet decided whether to allow the existing bidders to remain in the competition or ask them to submit fresh bids.
Project received No Objection Certificate (NoC) from Forest Department, clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forest will be obtained after the allocation of the coal block.
As of April 2016, Union government is planning the allotment of the coal block from Brahmanbil Coal Block and increase the power plant capacity to 2,640 MW instead of 1,320 MW.
Planning activities are underway.
