India-based Larsen and Toubro (L&T), through its Saudi Arabian subsidiary, has won an EPC order from Saudi Aramco to construct 55km of 230kV transmission lines
In an effort to meet future power demand at the Berri oil field in eastern part of Saudi Arabia, L&T will construct these double circuit overhead transmission lines and underground cabling.
The scope includes detailed design, engineering, site investigation, survey, material procurement, transportation, installation and training, the company said.
The project is expected to be completed in 26 months.
?With significant growth potential in oil production in Saudi Arabia, the winning of this order not only comes at a most opportune time but is also strategic from the point of view of L&T?s capability to execute such projects in an extremely competitive environment.
?It is also a significant step forward in L&T?s expansion plans into the international arena,? said S N Subrahmanyan, member of the board and senior executive vice president at L&T.
