The power transmission and distribution business of Larsen and Toubro (L&T) has bagged orders in India and abroad.

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the business has won orders to supply and construct shunt reactors in 132 kV substations on a turnkey basis.

These reactive power compensation elements will be added to the 132kV network of Dubai’s electricity infrastructure. Thus the company will provide voltage control to help maintain the highest standards of availability, reliability, and efficiency of electricity in Dubai.

Besides power infrastructure, L&T is also involved in upgrading the water supply network of Dubai.

Recently, the company was awarded a project to supply, install, and commission a water distribution network and large meter connections in Dubai.

“The scope includes water distribution networks of 137 Km GRE Pipelines, micro tunnelling works, SCADA and associated Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Works,” the company said.

In India, L&T’s renewable arm has won an order to construct a 245 MW solar power project in Rajasthan and to implement a solar photovoltaic cum storage project in the Kutch district of Gujarat.

The large scale, grid-interactive green energy storage project will have a 35 MW (AC) solar capacity and a 57 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
