Larsen & Toubro's Renewables arm has secured substantial contracts with a prominent developer in the Middle East to construct two Gigawatt-scale Solar PV plants, totaling 3.5GW in capacity

The scope includes grid interconnections involving pooling substations and overhead transmission lines. Detailed engineering and initial construction activities are set to commence soon.

Previously, L&T announced a solar-cum-storage plant order in India, further bolstering its renewables portfolio, which is on track to reach a cumulative capacity of 22 GWp, encompassing both commissioned and upcoming solar and wind projects.

Madhava Das, whole-time director & Sr executive vice-president (Utilities) at L&T, stated, "The successive order wins stand testimony to our proven engineering and project management capabilities to meet the requirements in terms of plant performance, workforce mobilisation, safety, quality and timeline. We cherish this level of customer trust."

Reflecting on these significant contracts, S N Subrahmanyan, chairman & managing director of L&T, remarked, "The Middle East is leading in sustainable energy infrastructure and smart lifestyle provisions. These orders are valuable additions to our green portfolio as we forge ahead with next-generation technologies, building the company of the future."
