L&T bags Rs1100 crore power plant EPC order
Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won an EPC order valued over Rs1100 crore from Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL), a Government of Gujarat company, to set up a 1×375 MW gas based power plant at Dhuvaran, near Baroda in Gujarat.
The company said the EPC order was bagged by L&T under global competitive bidding against stiff competition from Domestic and International power plant equipment manufacturers.
The scope of work includes design, detailed engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the complete power plant on a turnkey basis.
The plant will incorporate advanced class Gas Turbines and high efficiency Steam Turbines from Siemens AG, Germany, which will be procured by L&T.
L&T-Sargent & Lundy, a subsidiary of L&T, will carry out the plant integration and detailed engineering, using propriety technology of Sargent & Lundy LLC, USA.
L&T will design and manufacture critical equipment for the plant, like heat recovery steam generator, de-aerator, condenser, cooling tower, switchgear and valves. Project management, construction, installation and commissioning will also be carried out by L&T.
This project will be executed by the Gas Based Power Projects Business Unit of L&T Power, based in Baroda, and will be commissioned during 12th plan period, within 30 months from date of notice to proceed.
L&T has already executed several large gas based power projects and has recently commissioned a 238.5 MW cogeneration power plant for Indian Oil Corporation Limited at Panipat in Haryana, whereas another large 2 x 384 MW gas based power plant for GMR Group is at an advanced stage of execution at Vemagiri in Andhra Pradesh on EPC basis.
