L&T wins transmission project backing solar power evacuation from Rajasthan


Indian multinational Larsen & Toubro (L&T) announced today 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. 

L&T 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 the 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 the transfer of power from Rajasthan to Gujarat during a high renewable energy availability scenario.

L&T has also 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. The scope of work involves field survey and design and implementation of SCADA/DMS, outage management system, field force automation, dispatcher training simulator, etc. Associated hardware including feeder remote terminal units and related software/networking systems with suitable security mechanisms are also part of the scope,” stated L&T. 

L&T 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.
