L&T secures multiple power T&D orders
Larsen & Toubro’s power transmission and distribution (PT&D) business has won large (within the range of Rs 2,500 crore to Rs 5,000 crore) orders across its spectrum of offerings.
L&T has bagged two engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) orders to establish more than 400 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in Gujarat. The scope of these packages includes design, engineering, supply, construction, testing, commissioning and operation and maintenance of grid connected solar PV plants of about 200 MW each.
A 765 kV double circuit transmission line package has been received for a transmission scheme for evacuation of power from solar energy zones in Rajasthan.
In West Bengal, orders have been received to supply and instal high voltage distribution systems on a turnkey mode. This grid modernisation programme in semi-urban and rural areas is being implemented by the state with multilateral assistance. Another order to construct 220 kV and 132 kV transmission lines has been won from the state transmission utility.
The business has won a 400 kV substation order in Tamil Nadu. The scope of the package involves establishing a complete substation including associated transformers, reactors, switchgear, control and protection, and substation automation systems. This project is aimed to meet the future load growth of the Coimbatore region and to strengthen the evacuation system of an upcoming pumped storage power plant, stated the company.
In Qatar, the business has won an order to install line connected current limiting reactors. As the electricity network expands, this 400 kV equipment will supposedly help improve grid stability and enable use of existing switchgear without major replacements.
Larsen & Toubro is an Indian multinational engaged in EPC projects, manufacturing and services.
