India’s Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has received an order worth over 11bn rupees ($238m) from Gujarat State Electricity Corporation (GSECL) to build a 375 MW gas fired power plant.
The order is for setting up a 1×375 MW gas based power plant at Dhuvaran, near Baroda in Gujarat, on an EPC basis. The EPC order was bagged L&T under ‘global competitive bidding’ against stiff competition from domestic and international power plant equipment manufacturers.
L&T`s scope includes design, detailed engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the complete power plant on a turnkey basis. The plant will incorporate state-of-art advanced class gas turbines and high efficiency steam turbines from Siemens, Germany, which will be procured by L&T.
L&T Sargent & Lundy will carry out the plant integration and detailed engineering, using propriety technology of Sargent & Lundy, USA. L&T will design and manufacture critical equipment for the plant, like heat recovery steam generator, de-aerator, condenser, cooling tower, switchgear and valves. Project management, construction, installation and commissioning will also be carried out by L&T.
This project will be executed by the gas based power projects business unit of L&T Power, based in Baroda, and will be commissioned within 30 months from date of notice to proceed.
