New Delhi: Engineering major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Monday said it has received a Rs1,100 crore order from Gujarat State Electricity Corporation (GSECL) for setting up a 375-MW gas-based power plant at Dhuvaran, near Baroda.
The project, which will be executed by the gas-based power projects business unit of Baroda-based L&T Power, will be commissioned during the next Five-Year Plan, L&T said in a statement.
L&T will design, supply, install and commission the entire power project on a turnkey basis. It will procure advance gas turbines and high-efficiency steam turbines for the plant from Siemens AG, Germany.
“The EPC order was bagged by L&T under global competitive bidding against stiff competition from domestic and international power plant equipment manufacturers,” L&T said.
L&T has already executed a number of gas-based power projects and recently commissioned a 238.5-MW co-generation power plant for Indian Oil Corporation at Panipat. It is also executing a 2x384-MW gas-based power plant for GMR Group at Vemagiri, in Andhra Pradesh.
