India's top engineering and construction firm Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said it has won its single largest order in the Middle East region worth $817 million from Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa).
The contract was awarded to the power transmission and distribution business of L&T for Qatar's ongoing Electricity Transmission Network Expansion Plan-Phase 13, said a statement from the company.
The scope of work involves the engineering, procurement and construction of 30 new gas-insulated substations of varying voltage levels of 220 kV, 132 kV and 66 kV and approximately 560 km of 132 kV and 66 kV underground cables under various definite and framework packages, said Essa bin Hilal Al Kuwari, the president of Kahramaa, after signing the contract with SN Subrahmanyan, the deputy managing director and president for L&T.
These substations will be built in various parts of Qatar over the next 15 to 32 months, he added.
On the contract win, Subrahmanyan said: "The development drive in Qatar is in high gear and we are proud to be partnering in it by bagging yet another prestigious project from Kahramaa."
“We have been associated with Kahramaa for over a decade which has put in place a programme well ahead of the times to provide sufficient power and water for Qatar. We look forward to furthering this significant strategic relationship and continue to play a key role in making Qatar proud and a very modern State,” he added.
After being involved in Phases Eight, 10, 11, 11-A and 12, this mandate from Kahramaa represents a repeat order for Phase 13.
Previously, the Qatari group had awarded L&T contracts to build more than 40 substations and 100 km of high-voltage cabling projects worth nearly $1.1 billion.
