L&T lands power distribution work across Qatar
Larsen & Toubro’s power transmission and distribution business has won its largest single order in the Middle East.
The US$817m (£658m) contract for Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) is the latest phase in the ongoing expansion of the country’s transmission network.
The order will involve the engineering, procurement and construction of 30 new substations of varying voltage levels - 220kV, 132kV and 66 kV - and approximately 560km of 132kV and 66kV underground cables. The works of the project are spread all over the State of Qatar including both freshly developed as well as already developed areas.
The project is scheduled for staggered completion in phases over a period of 15 to 32 months.
“The development drive in the State of Qatar is in high gear and we are proud to be partnering in it by bagging yet another prestigious project from Kahramaa,” said Larsen & Toubro deputy managing director and president SN Subrahmanyan.
He added that L&T has been worked with Kahramaa for over a decade, carrying out power and water programmes. L&T’s contract for the current phase, XII, follows involvement in phases VIII, X, XI and XI-A. Previously, Kahramma has awarded L&T more than 40 substations and approximately 100km of high-voltage cabling projects worth nearly US$1.1bn.
