Larsen & Toubro’s Power Transmission & Distribution (PT&D) Business has secured multiple domestic EPC orders to establish gas insulated substations in large renewable energy zones in India.
As the country’s power generation evolves, Large Renewable Energy (RE) zones are being developed that house several solar and wind projects from various developers in contiguous land parcels. The power generated from such individual projects is collected at pooling substations, located in the vicinity, and then re-distributed to intra-state and inter-state transmission networks.
The Khavda RE park in Gujarat’s Kutch region and the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh are two such zones where the PT&D Business has won orders for establishing 765kV and 400kV gas insulated substations to serve as pooling substations.
The substation packages include more than 7 km of gas insulated bus ducts, bus reactors, and protection & automation systems.
Additionally, the PT&D Business has bagged orders to develop distribution infrastructure in two circles of Rajasthan’s prominent discom.
L&T operates in over 50 countries worldwide and has a customer-focused approach that has enabled it to attain and sustain leadership in its major lines of business for eight decades.
