Engineering and construction company L&T on February 22 said, “Its power transmission and distribution business has bagged large domestic and international contracts.

In a filing with the stock exchange, L&T said, “The Power Transmission & Distribution (PT&D) business of Larsen & Toubro has secured two engineering, procurements, and construction (EPC) orders to establish more than 400 MW solar photovoltaic projects in Gujarat. The scope of these packages involves Design, Engineering, Supply, Construction, Testing, Commissioning and Operation & Maintenance of Grid-Connected Solar PV Plants of about 200 MW each.”

“A 765kV Double Circuit Transmission Line package has been received through a project-specific transmission company. This line is associated with the transmission scheme for the evacuation of power from solar energy zones in Rajasthan,” the filing said.

“In West Bengal, orders have been received to supply and install High Voltage Distribution Systems in certain districts on a turnkey mode. This grid modernization program in semi-urban and rural areas is being implemented by the State with multilateral assistance,” it added.

“Another order to construct 220kV and 132kV Transmission Lines have 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 & protection, substation automation systems, etc. 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,” L&T said.

Adding to the filing the company further said, “In Qatar, the business has won an order to install line connected current limiting reactors for the first time in the country’s network. As the electricity network expands, this 400 kV equipment will help improve grid stability and enable the use of existing switchgear without major replacements.”

Commenting on the development, Mr. T. Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities), L&T said, “These orders stand testimony to the fact that L&T is uniquely positioned as a dependable EPC player to deliver projects ranging from electrification to energy transition with speed and scale, to utilities and developers globally.”
