New Delhi: Infrastructure firm Lanco Infratech on Tuesday said it has bagged a Rs4,100 crore order from an arm of Moser Baer Projects to execute a 1200-MW power project.
Lanco bagged the order through a international competitive bidding, the company said in a filing to Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
“Lanco Infratech Limited (LITL) EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) division has been awarded a Rs4,100 crore EPC contract by a subsidiary of Moser Baer Projects Pvt Ltd for execution of its coal based 2x600 MW power project”, LITL said in its filing.
