Indian contractor Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has completed contracts for NTPC Limited’s Khargone power station in Madhya Pradesh and Tanda power station in Uttar Pradesh, with both facilities now operational.

The work was completed by L&T’s power business, and is expected to allow NTPC to add 1320MW of generation capacity to its operations.

The Khargone unit is India’s first “ultra-supercritical” plant set up entirely on an engineering, procurement, and construction basis, while the Tanda unit is equipped with a supercritical boiler manufactured by L&T-MHPS Boilers Pvt Ltd, a joint venture company of L&T and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) in Japan.

Commenting on the milestone, L&T's chief executive officer and managing director, SN Subrahmanyan, said: “Successful completion of full load trial run of India’s first ultra-supercritical power plant unit showcases our robust capabilities in engineering, manufacturing, project management and construction in executing complex mega power projects.”
