SJVNL approaches APTEL in the Dholera solar tender cancellation issue

Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVNL) has approached the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL) to seek a remedy in the Dholera solar tender cancellation issue.

The APTEL had earlier heard the cases filed under an emergency listing by other winners of the tender namely O2 Power, Tata Power, and Vena Energy and reserved judgment on the matter. Till an interim order is passed, Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) cannot go ahead with its intended re-auction of the same project. Out of the total of 700 MW, SJVN had won 100 MW at a bid of Rs 2.80 per unit. Vena and Tata Power had won 100 MW each at a tariff of Rs 2.78, while ReNew won 200 MW at Rs 2.79. O2 was awarded the remaining 200 MW at Rs 2.81. ReNew Power remains the only company not to file a case.
