Engineering and construction major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) today said it has won a Rs 747-crore order from Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) to supply steam generators. “The heavy engineering arm of Larsen & Toubro has received orders worth Rs 747 crore from NPCIL to supply steam generators and end shields for its indigenously designed 700 MWe Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR) to be set up at the Gorakhpur Haryana Anu Vidyut Pariyojana (GHAVP) in Fatehabad district of Haryana,” L&T said in a statement.

These steam generators and end shields will be manufactured at L&T’s integrated facility in the Hazira manufacturing complex in Gujarat, which is one of the largest of its kind in South Asia, it said. The steam generator is a critical equipment of the nuclear power facility, that generates steam by using heat produced in a reactor core, while the end shield is used to prevent direct radiation coming out from the reactor core.

Commenting on the order, Shailendra Roy, Whole-Time Director (Power, Heavy Engg & Nuclear), L&T, said, “India’s nuclear power programme is designed to provide a safe, environmentally clean and economically viable source of electrical energy. As a pioneer equipment supplier to the nuclear power segment, L&T is committed to contributing to the accelerated development of the Indian nuclear power programme.”

These orders are in addition to recent orders worth Rs 442 crore received by L&T Special Steel & Heavy Forgings for supply of forgings for steam generators. So far, the firm has delivered 51 steam generators and 36 end shields for Indian PHW Reactors (PHWR) and Fast Breeder Reactors (FBR). Larsen & Toubro is an Indian multinational engaged in technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing and financial services, with over $17 billion in revenue.
