Engineering and construction giant L&T today announced its power division has won orders worth Rs 1,400 crore from state-run electricity generator NTPC Ltd.

 

“The company has received two orders for setting up Flue Gas De-sulphurisation (FGD) systems from NTPC at its Vindhyachal Super Thermal Power Plant in Madhya Pradesh and Darlipali Super Thermal Power Project in Odisha,” the company said in a statement.

 

Installation of FGD systems in existing and upcoming thermal power plants has been made mandatory by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) to curtail SO2 emissions.

 

The $18 billion firm has a long-term technical licence agreement with Chiyoda Corporation of Japan for its FGD technology. The agreement grants L&T exclusive rights to undertake engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of CT-121TM FGD systems.

 

The technology developed by Chiyoda allows absorption of sulphur dioxide from flue gas generated by coal-fired, oil-fired and other types of boilers and removed as gypsum. The Power business of L&T, through its joint venture companies, has also won orders in the domestic and export markets for engineering services and supply of components.
