In Clean News, Clean Talk, Environment, News, Products, Technology

The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has issued a domestic competitive bidding tender for the development of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh.

The EV charging infrastructure will be developed on a turnkey basis. The scope of work includes the supply, packing, forwarding, transportation, unloading storage, installation, and commissioning of the EV charging infrastructure.

NTPC will finance the development of EV charging infrastructure through its own resources. All bidders are required to submit a bid security of ₹2.95 million. It have entered a tripartite agreement with Jabalpur Smart City and Jabalpur City Transport Services to set up EV charging infrastructure for all EVs across the city.

The current tender is for the development of two EV charging stations. Each station will be able to accommodate 60 buses at a time and will have extra space for other vehicles.

The newly announced tender is in line with NTPC’s plans to expand the EV charging sector across India. In October 2017, NTPC was seeking a pan-India license to construct and set up EV charging stations across India.

NTPC is also in the process of developing 20 EV charging stations across Delhi NCR and, in August 2017, the corporation successfully set up two EV charging stations at its offices in Noida and Delhi.
