Larsen & Toubro’s Power Transmission & Distribution business has won several engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) orders in the present quarter to develop transmission lines and substations in Saudi Arabia.
The orders have been considered significant, which the company terms as those valued between $120.72m – $301.80m (Rs10bn-Rs25bn).
L&T will be responsible for the engineering, design, procurement and construction of over 400km of 380kV Overhead Transmission Lines and a new 230kV Gas Insulated Substation with related automation and protection systems.
Strengthening of the transmission network is essential for delivering safe and efficient supply of electricity given that Saudi Arabia started a National Renewable Energy Program towards achieving optimal generation mix as per its strategic vision for 2030.
Earlier this month, L&T Construction’s Water & Effluent Treatment business has secured repeat orders from the Narmada Water Resources, Water Supply & Kalpsar Department of the Indian state of Gujarat to undertake the pumping system and pipeline works from Tappar Dam to Nirona Dam (Northern Link).
This is considered a large contract, which the company terms as those valued between $300m and $610m (Rs25bn and Rs50bn)
L&T is responsible for the design, supply, construction and commissioning of pump houses and pipelines, with related electrical & automation works.
This project is expected to bolster water resources in Kachchh district of Gujarat by filling current reservoirs to irrigate 36,392ha of land.
