“We have the manufacturing and execution capabilities to deliver to stringent schedules while conforming to global standards.”

LMB is currently executing nine units of steam generator packages in India that have a combined capacity of 5.9GW.

The company has also completed 11 supercritical units totalling another 7,340MW. They are under commercial operation.

In addition to India, LMB provides engineering services, pressure parts and pulverisers to the Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Latin America.

Last month,  L&T secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) via its power business.

NTPC will set up a flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) system at stages I and II of the Vindhyachal super thermal power station in Madhya Pradesh. The contract value is expected to range between $138m (Rs10bn) and $347m (Rs25bn).
