L&T Construction bags major orders for its Power Transmission & Distribution Biz

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Monday announced that its Power Transmission & Distribution Business has secured EPC orders in India and overseas.

India has taken up major transmission system expansion works to integrate Renewable Energy (RE) projects in RE potential zones in Gujarat and to evacuate power from solar energy zones in Rajasthan.

The Business has secured turnkey packages related to these works to establish over 365 Km of 765kV double circuit transmission lines. The transmission line segment in Rajasthan will facilitate evacuation of solar energy from the Ramgarh, Fategarh and Bhadla complexes to various beneficiaries. 

The Gujarat link is part of the network expansion to integrate the Khavda RE potential zone. Through an already established link, the upcoming line will enable transfer of power from Rajasthan to Gujarat during high renewable energy availability scenario, the company informed in the regulatory fling on Monday.

Further, the Business has received an order to implement an Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) in the Greater Mumbai area. This order marks the penetration of intelligent controls, which have hitherto been limited mostly to generation and transmission levels, into the distribution level.

Also, the Business has secured another order to develop distribution infrastructure in a district of Chhattisgarh under the Revamped, Reforms-based and Results-linked Distribution Sector (RDSS) Scheme.

Overseas, the Business has received an order to construct a 380kV Substation with associated transmission interconnections in Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the developments, T. Madhava Das, Whole – Time Director and Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities) said, “The logical next step after 100% electrification is to modernize our distribution systems with smart & intelligent elements. We are happy to contribute to this front by combining our physical infrastructure creation and digital energy solution capabilities."
