L&T has secured an order worth Rs 5,580 crore from NTPC to set up a 1,320-MW greenfield thermal power plant in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh.
The order on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis is for supply, erection and commissioning of two coal- fired thermal units of 660 MW each with ultra-supercritical parameters.
L&T said this is the first EPC package order awarded to it by NTPC for a complete thermal power plant.
In September 2014, L&T, through its joint venture company L&T-MHPS Boilers had secured an order worth Rs 1,885 crore from NTPC for 2 units of 660 MW supercritical steam generators for the Tanda Thermal Power Plant Stage-2 in Uttar Pradesh.
“This EPC package order from a central utility like NTPC also comes with the added responsibility of executing the power project under stringent norms and timelines,” said Shailendra Roy, Whole-time Director (Power, Minerals and Metals).
“L&T commenced its EPC power project execution for coal-fired power plants, including manufacture of supercritical boiler- turbine-generator in 2009 and is now capable of delivering energy efficient and environmentally friendly thermal power plants to various clients across the region,” Roy added.
