L&T wins contracts for various projects in India, Nepal and Saudi Arabia


The construction division of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has been awarded significant contracts for various projects in India, Nepal and Saudi Arabia.

The construction company has classified the orders as ‘significant’, which valued between INR10bn ($134m) and INR25bn ($336m).

The heavy civil infrastructure business of L&T has received a Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Infrastructure contract from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The company said that the RRTS is not similar to the metro rail system as it provides passengers who are looking to travel relatively longer distances quickly with fewer stops.

Under the contract, the business unit will deliver a new, dedicated, high speed, high capacity rail project in the Delhi-Gaziabad- Meerut Corridor.

It will build an 11km viaduct along with five elevated stations from Shatabdi Nagar to Brahmapuri and Begumpul to the Modipuram Depot.

They are designed for speeds up to 180kmph with the average operational speed of 100kmph, which is nearly three times faster than metros.

L&T’s Power Transmission & Distribution business has secured a contract to design, supply, install and commission a 220kV gas insulated substation and associated works in connected substations in Nepal.

The work package is said to be part of the Power Transmission and Distribution Efficiency Enhancement Project, which is being developed to reduce system overloads and losses in the valley.

The Power Transmission & Distribution business has also won contracts to establish certain transmission links in the existing 132kV network in Saudi Arabia.
