L&T EPC expertise showcased at Wetex

November 2019

Larsen & Toubro (L&T), an Indian multinational conglomerate and a leader in engineering, technology, construction and financial services, showcased its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) capabilities and expertise in infrastructure development at the Wetex 2019 expo last month at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

 L&T has established a successful execution track record in several core sectors of the GCC and Africa region including construction, power transmission and distribution, solar energy, heavy civil infrastructure, transportation infrastructure, hydrocarbon engineering, water and smart world communication and buildings and factories.

 L&T’s Power Transmission & Distribution unit is currently executing a total of 87 substation projects in the GCC. To date, it has completed 215 substation projects in the region.

The group has also executed several landmark power infrastructure projects for Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa). Significant projects under way include more than 20 substations and cabling projects across various voltages and an extra high-voltage substation of 400 kV. L&T is also executing several substation and cabling projects in the UAE for utilities like Transco and Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC).

 L&T’s international track record in the power sector covers over 4,400 km of transmission lines of various voltages up to 500 kV, more than 300 substations as well as more than 3,200 km of cabling.

 Across the renewable energy portfolio, L&T is at the forefront as one of the largest EPC contractors in India having executed more than 2 GW of solar power projects. It is also among the world’s leading solar photovoltaic (PV) installers and has the biggest tracker portfolio for EPC in India with more than 440 MW of projects.

Backed by a strong execution track record and vast expertise across solar EPC value chain, L&T has forayed into the international renewable space especially in the Middle East and Africa.

One of L&T’s most noteworthy infrastructure projects in the UAE is the 375,000 cu m per day sewage treatment plant (STP) in Jebel Ali (Phase Two). The project is the biggest in the UAE, built by its Water & Effluent Treatment business of L&T Construction along with JV partners, Besix. This project is an integral part of Dubai Municipality’s strategic plan to meet the current and future demand for water generated from the surrounding area, which is seeing major new developments including the Expo 2020 projects.

Elsewhere in the region, the multinational conglomerate says it is executing a number of key projects in Saudi Arabia. Apart from its involvement in the Riyadh Metro as part of a consortium, L&T is working on the Ma’aden Gold factory project.

In Oman, it is constructing the Al Sharqiyah Expressway Section Two, Package One and Batinah Expressway Package Four after the successfully completion of the Salalah Airport.
