L&T will design and manufacture critical equipment for the plant, like the heat recovery steam generator, de-aerator, condenser, cooling tower, switchgear and valves. Project management, construction, installation and commissioning will also be carried out by L&T. This project will be executed by the gas-based power projects business unit of L&T Power, based in Baroda.
