The orders were bagged by L&T Construction’s Power Transmission & Distribution business, the company said in a press statement.

In Saudi Arabia, an order for turnkey construction of a 380kV Substation with associated overhead transmission lines was awarded.

The Kuwait win comprised a contract to build five substations for an upcoming residential city.

The statement said additional orders have been won in ongoing substation orders in Qatar but didn’t elaborate.

While L&T doesn’t disclose specific contract value, the statement categorised the awards as ‘large,’ in the INR 25,000 million to INR 50,000 million range. ($300 million-$600 million)
