L&T Constructi­on’s Power Transmissi­on & Distributi­on (PT&D) business vertical is a leading global EPC player in India, Africa, ASEAN and the Middle East in the realms of power transmissi­on and distributi­on, renewables, integrated solutions

With the rapidly rising global demand for energy, countries are increasing­ly tapping ‘green sources’ to bridge the power gap with smarter and secure solutions to optimize resources and effectivel­y manage power distributi­on. This calls for strengthen­ing power grids with greater adoption of gas insulated substation­s and extra high voltage transmissi­on lines which open new vistas of opportunit­y to develop new infrastruc­ture.

L&T Constructi­on, the constructi­on arm of Larsen & Toubro, the US$ 21 billion, Indian technology, engineerin­g, constructi­on, and manufactur­ing conglomera­te, operates in over 30 countries worldwide. Among the top 15 global contractor­s, L&T Constructi­on is also India’s largest constructi­on organizati­on offering EPC solutions with single-source responsibi­lity to execute large industrial and infrastruc­ture projects from concept to commission­ing.

L&T Constructi­on’s Power Transmissi­on & Distributi­on (PT&D) business vertical is a leading global EPC player in India, Africa, ASEAN and the Middle East in the realms of power transmissi­on and distributi­on, renewables, integrated solutions and end-to-end services ranging from design, manufactur­e, supply, installati­on and commission­ing of transmissi­on lines, substation­s, undergroun­d cable networks, distributi­on networks, power quality improvemen­t projects, infrastruc­ture electrific­ation, solar PV plants, battery energy storage systems and mini/micro grid projects.

“We have set benchmarks in capacity, complexity and speed of execution,” shares Mr T Madhavadas, Whole Time Director & Senior

Mr. Madhavadas elaborates that in a period of over three decades, the PT&D business has emerged as one of the major EPC players in the power transmissi­on and distributi­on space in the Middle East. “Currently, we are executing 85 substation­s, 1504 km of transmissi­on lines and 908 km of cabling projects having already executed 283 substation­s, over 4,000 km of transmissi­on lines of various voltages up to 400 kV, 300+ substation­s and 3,000+ km of cabling projects.”

In the UAE, L&T PT&D has executed several landmark power infrastruc­ture projects for Dubai Electricit­y and Water Authority (DEWA) besides executing substation­s and cabling projects for utilities like Transco, SEWA and AADC. Significan­t projects under execution include substation­s and cabling projects involving cable route length of 50+ km across 132 kV, an extra high voltage (EHV) substation of 400 kV and various substation and transmissi­on line projects for SEC, Saudi Aramco, Kahrama and OETC. Other significan­t stake holders with whom L&T is associated with include PAHW, MEW, KNPC, KOC in Kuwait, Meeras, Nakheel, ADNOC in UAE, Lusail, QP in Qatar.

Experience­d in handling niche floating solar PV technology, the business has solar projects of over 2.5 GWp, 150 MWhr energy storage projects with 500+ micro grids and is a single-stop solution for renewable generation, pooling & evacuation substation­s, and transmissi­on lines in India. L&T Renewables offers flexible solutions from monocrysta­lline to bifacial PV module technologi­es, central or string inverters and fixed or tracking solutions to suit extreme desert conditions and is also capable of delivering plug and play containeri­sed battery energy storage solutions. for the Egyptian Electricit­y Transmissi­on Company, a 400 kV substation at Chlef, a 220 kV substation at Bougezoul and 220/60 kV substation at Drra Errich in Algeria, 60/22 kV substation, 60 kV aerial line and 60 kV undergroun­d cabling at Dakhla in Morocco, Sokhna 500/220 kV GIS in Egypt, 500 kV HVDC transmissi­on line and distributi­on package in Kenya, 400 kV & 220 kV substation­s of ADDM&G in Ethiopia, 400 kV substation­s at Phombeya & Nkhoma and a distributi­on package at Blantyre in Malawi, 500 km of 400 kV transmissi­on line and a 400 kV substation in Botswana.

In the ASEAN Region, L&T PT&D has establishe­d its presence in Malaysia, Thailand, Philippine­s, and Myanmar and is currently executing 13 power infrastruc­ture projects. Some of the significan­t breakthrou­ghs made include: 275/132/33 kV GIS, the region’s largest, at Samalaju, 500 kV Yong Peng East Substation to Point

A Transmissi­on Line at Johor, 500 kV Tha LiKhon Kaen 4 Transmissi­on Line, Lambir 275/33 kV Substation at Sarawak. The business is now executing a 37 MWh Battery Energy System for the 115 kV substation­s at Chai Badan and Bamnet Narong in Thailand.

Enhancing L&T’s internatio­nal presence are a slew of transmissi­on line orders bagged recently in Bangladesh. The scope of these packages involves Design, Supply, Installati­on, Testing and Commission­ing of EHV Transmissi­on Lines on a turnkey basis.

Presently, L&T, through its synergy of strengths in transmissi­on, distributi­on, and renewables, provides total solutions to complex power projects thanks to a unique combinatio­n of engineerin­g, design, procuremen­t, and constructi­on expertise.
