L&T nets Rs1,635 crore contract for 1,200 MW coal-fired power plant in MP

Construction and engineering major L&T said on Monday that it has bagged a Rs1,635 crore contract to set up a 1,200 MW coal-fired plant for Madhya Pradesh Power Generation Co Ltd.

The project is to be executed on a turnkey basis and L&T's scope includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of balance of Plan Package (BoP) systems comprising coal handling and ash handling plants, CW and raw water intake systems, effluent treatment plant, BOP civil works, cooling towers, chimney, 400kV and 200kV Switchyards, plant electrical systems and other associated auxiliaries.

The project will add approximately 28.8 million units to the grids every day after the plant becomes fully operational.

The project is being financed by the MP state government and Power Finance Corporation (PFC).

L&T is geared for a major thrust into engineering and construction in the power sector – both thermal and nuclear. A slew of recent initiatives have served to integrate and augment its capabilities.

It set up a wholly owned subsidiary, L&T Power Limited, which brings together all its offerings in the thermal power segment. It has entered into joint ventures with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) for the manufacture of supercritical boilers and steam turbine generators.
