The construction arm of L&T has secured orders from prestigious clients for two of its businesses.
Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business:
The 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 in the Delhi – Gaziabad – Meerut Corridor.
RRTS is different from a metro rail system as it caters to passengers looking to travel relatively longer distances with fewer stops and quicker. The scope involves construction of a 11 km viaduct including 5 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.
Power Transmission & Distribution Business:
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 to Design, Supply, Installation and Commission 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 valley.
In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the business has received orders to establish certain transmission links in the existing 132kV network.
