The power vertical of the Indian multinational conglomerate Larsen & Toubro has reportedly announced to have bagged two contracts worth INR 1,400 crore from the state-owned National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). As per trusted sources, the power vertical of Larsen & Toubro would set up FGD systems at NTPC’s Darlipali Super Thermal Power Project in Odisha and Vindhyachal Thermal Power Station in Madhya Pradesh.

Reportedly, the deployment of FGD systems at the upcoming and existing thermal power projects has been made mandatory by the Indian Government’s Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change (MoEFCC), to reduce SO2 emissions. Sources familiar with the development claim that the contract grants absolute rights to the company to initiate engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of CT-121TM flue gas desulphurization (FGD) systems.
