The construction arm of Larsen & Toubro has secured orders from prestigious clients for its heavy civil infrastructure and power transmission & distribution business.
L&T Construction’s heavy civil infrastructure business has secured another regional rapid transit system (RRTS) infrastructure order from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in Uttar Pradesh to execute a new, dedicated, high-speed, high-capacity rail project on the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor.
RRTS is different from a metro rail system as it caters to passengers looking to travel relatively long distances with fewer stops and quicker. The scope involves the construction of an 11 km viaduct including five elevated stations from Shatabdi Nagar to Brahmapuri and Begumpul to the Modipuram Depot, designed for speeds up to 180 kmph, with the average operational speed of 100 kmph, which is almost three times faster than that of metros.
L&T’s power transmission & distribution business has won a slew of orders in the international market. In Nepal, the business has won an order for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a crucial 220kV gas insulated substation along with associated works in connected substations. The package is part of the Power Transmission and Distribution Efficiency Enhancement Project being undertaken to reduce system overloads and losses in the Kathmandu Valley.
In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the business has received orders to establish certain transmission links in the existing 132kV network.
