L&T senior executive vice president (Infrastructure & Construction), SN Subrahmanyan, said: "This order, won against stiff global competition reconfirms L&T’s leadership position in this sector at GCC. It also aligns well with L&T’s expansion plans in the international arena.”

The project is scheduled to be completed in 22 months.
