India's top engineering and construction firm Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said one of its key subsidiaries,
 
L&T’s Power Transmission & Distribution, has won two transmission line packages in Saudi Arabia which are worth Rs10 billion to Rs25 billion ($137 million to $341 million).
 
The scope of work includes design, procurement and construction of 380kV double circuit overhead transmission line corridors running over 650km long.
 
These lines are expected to strengthen the grid in the Eastern Region of Saudi Arabia and facilitate power evacuation, said a statement from the Indian construction conglomerate.
 
In addition to these, L&T has clinched several major local contracts. Its Water & Effluent Treatment business has secured an EPC order in the state of Gujarat to execute a package in the Saurashtra Narmada Avtaran Irrigation (Sauni) Yojna Link 3.
 
Sauni is a project launched by the government to fill various reservoirs by diverting floodwaters overflowing from the Sardar Sarovar Dam across the Narmada river to drought areas in Gujarat.
 
The project involves survey, design, procurement, laying and jointing of 2,500 mm diameter MS pipeline. L&T has already completed 4 packages in the Sauni Yojana for the same client, it stated.
 
A major player in the region, L&T is a specialist in engineering, procurement and construction projects, manufacturing, defence and services with over $21 billion in revenue. It operates in over 30 countries worldwide.-TradeArabia News Service
