Date: August 10, 2018
Larsen & Toubro's power business has bagged an order worth Rs 1,080 crore, the engineering major said Thursday.
L&T has received two orders from NTPC for setting up flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) systems at its supercritical thermal power plants at Khargone in Madhya Pradesh and at Lara in Chhattisgarh.
"With stringent pollution control measures in place, coal-fired power plants will play a major role in the country’s energy mix for years to come, and L&T is fully geared to cater to this new market of air pollution control systems," said Shailendra Roy, chief executive officer and managing director of L&T Power, said.
The government has made it mandatory for thermal power plants to install FGD systems to curb sulphur dioxide emissions.
