However, the source did not specify whether the commercial bid evaluation process has concluded or whether negotiations with shortlisted bidders have commenced.  In May  Enowa had started evaluating the prices submitted by bidders in March for the contract, which is being procured using an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) model. Enowa received bids for the contract by 4 March. The wind farm project site is approximately 35 kilometres northwest of the former town of Gayal. The project will have an estimated plot area of 164 square kilometres. The project duration is 31 months from the start of construction.
