India’s Bombay Stock Exchange-listed construction heavyweight Larsen & Toubro (L&T) revealed that the water and effluent treatment business of its subsidiary L&T Construction has been awarded a contract to work on Phase 2 of Oman’s Al Dhakhlia Water Transmission System.

As part of the contract L&T Construction will work on the design and implementation of the water infrastructure project.

In a statement the company said: “This is a repeat order from the client and has been secured under international competitive bidding.”

L&T Construction’s scope of work includes constructing 173km-long pipeline for water transmission with associated civil works in addition to 18RCC water storage reservoirs. The contractor will also construct five pumping stations with associated mechanical, electrical, control, and instrumental works.

The company did not provide value of the contract but said the orders fall under "significant" category, which as per its classification of contracts ranges between $136.7m (INR10bn) and $341.4m (INR25bn).

In September 2019, L&T was awarded the main contract for the construction of Mandarin Oriental Muscat, a hotel that is being developed by Eagle Hills Muscat – a partnership between the UAE's Eagle Hills Abu Dhabi and Oman's Izz International.
