L&T secures EPC order from WBPDCL to install FGD system

Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) Power businsess has secured an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) order from West Bengal Power Development Corporation Limited (WBPDCL) for the installation of wet flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) systems at the Sagardighi thermal power plant in West Bengal.

The key project highlights include three FGD absorbers serving four thermal power units (2×300 MW, 2×500 MW), along with balance of plant systems for five units. This marks L&T’s first FGD project for a state-owned power utility. With this order, L&T is set to install FGD projects for thermal power plants with a total capacity of over 19 GW, actively contributing to the government’s initiative to cut sulphur dioxide emissions.
