Larsen & Toubro (L&T), a top engineering and construction firm based in India said one of its units has been awarded Rs18.8 billion ($253 million) order for power infrastructure in connection with major housing projects in Kuwait.

As per the deal, L&T's Power Transmission and Distribution Business will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a total of 22 132/11 kV substations in Kuwait.

Thanks to these substation networks, the large housing projects being developed by the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) at South Al Mutlaa and South Abdullah Al Mubarak cities will receive reliable power supply, said a statement from L&T.

The Ministry of Electricity and Water is the consultant for the project, it stated.
