India's top engineering and construction firm Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said one of its key subsidiaries, Power Transmission & Distribution, has secured major orders for substations - in the range of Rs50 billion to Rs70 billion ($650 million to $922 million) from the Gulf region besides a contract for a 220 kV gas insulated unit from Egypt and some local orders.
The company has been awarded a major contract in Kuwait for upgradation of substations and related power facilities in Kuwait National Petroleum Company's (KNPC) Mina Al Ahmadi oil refinery. 
The revamped network of distribution substations with latest technology will enhance the reliability of power supply and facilitate expansion, said the statement from the Indian construction giant.
L&T's Power Transmission & Distribution unit has also won a 400 kV grid station order in Oman which will be a crucial element in the sultanate’s major transmission initiative to interconnect the grids in the south and north with the PDO Area.
In Egypt, the group has been roped in to design, supply, construct and commission a 220 kV gas insulated substation.
L&T said its renewable arm too has won large engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) orders on the domestic and international fronts to set up solar photovoltaic plants totalling more than 500 MW. 
These grids connected to power plants also entail related power evacuation and interconnection systems, said the statement.
On the domestic front, L&T bagged the order in Chennai to strengthen the urban high tension (HT) distribution network in addition to ring main units and feeder remote terminal units on a total turnkey basis. 
Also, fully automated, unmanned 33 kV gas insulated substations will be established at select locations.
Another order has been secured to supply and install medium-voltage capacitor banks with related accessories under different discoms in Uttar Pradesh, said the statement from L&T.
Additional orders have been received in ongoing substation, transmission line and renewable projects, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
