L&T’s gas-based power projects business unit in Vadodara will execute the overall project.

L&T Power CEO and managing director Shailendra Roy said: “That L&T has bagged the fourth order in Bangladesh firmly establishes its project execution credentials in that country.”

L&T has recently commissioned two gas-based power plants in Bangladesh, including the 360MW Bheramara Combined-Cycle Power Plant development project of North West Power Generation and the 225MW Sikalbaha Combined-Cycle Power Plant project of BPDB.
