India’s construction giant Larsen & Toubro has won power infrastructure contracts in the UAE, Ethiopia, Uganda and Thailand.
The $20bn-turnover group said yesterday it had won a contract for the installation and commissioning of 132kV underground cables in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In Ethiopia and Uganda, orders have been received for establishing distribution networks involving medium/low voltage distribution lines and last mile consumer connections, to improve electricity access in towns and rural areas.
In Thailand the company won an order, in a consortium, to build battery energy storage systems for 115kV substations in Chaiyaphum and Lopburi provinces. These will help smooth intermittent renewable power generation.
