The construction arm of India’s Larsen and Toubro (L&T) has won contracts to build substations in Dubai and Saudi Arabia, with the latter described as a “major order” for the firm, a regulatory filing revealed.

The power transmission and distribution business of L&T's construction arm secured an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to build 115kV substations with “associated transmission lines and cable circuits” in the kingdom.

In the same filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange, the L&T unit said it won a separate order to deliver 132kV cable works for a substation in Dubai.
