The business has received two orders from NTPC for setting up Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) systems at its supercritical thermal power plants at Khargone, Madhya Pradesh and Lara, Chhattisgarh.
Installation of FGD systems in existing and upcoming thermal power plants has been made mandatory by Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, (MoEFCC), Government of India to curtail SO2emissions.
Commenting on the FGD orders, Mr Shailendra Roy, CEO & Managing Director, L&T Power and Whole-Time Director, L&T, said, "With stringent pollution control measures in place, coal-fired power plants will play a major role in the country's energy mix for years to come, and L&T is fully geared to cater to this new market of air pollution control systems."

The agreement grants L&T exclusive rights to undertake engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of CT-121TM FGD systems.
