Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T), executing 2×660 MW supercritical thermal power project at Chhabra in Rajasthan, has on October 2, 2016 achieved synchronisation of its first 660 MW supercritical unit (Unit-5) of the project in record time of 42 months and four days from the date of Notice to Proceed (March 28, 2013).
The thermal power project is being developed by the state utility, Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited.
The synchronisation is significant since it is the fastest synchronisation for L&T amongst all its other projects to date and the speediest one so far for any indigenously manufactured supercritical unit in India. The previous best unit synchronisation achieved for indigenously manufactured supercritical unit was 46 months for L&T’s Rajpura project in Punjab, which has now been improved to 42 months.
Mr. Shailendra Roy, CEO and Managing Director – L&T Power, and Whole-Time Director, L&T said, “The synchronisation achievement shows that L&T is well equipped to handle tighter project schedules and meet customer expectations. In this case, L&T has bettered its own record.”
