L&T Construction Wins Rs. 1213 Cr Western Dedicated Freight Corridor Project

The Railways Unit, a part of the Transportation Infrastructure Business of L&T Construction has won a major order worth ?1213 crores from the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Ltd. (DFCCIL). This prestigious order has been secured by a consortium of Larsen & Toubro Ltd and Sojitz Corp., Japan. The design and build order involves electrification works for a 422 km section of the western dedicated freight corridor from Vadodara in Gujarat to JNPT (near Mumbai) in Maharashtra. The section spanning across two states is in continuation to the Rewari – Vadodara Section (915 km) for which L&T Construction is already executing the electrification works with similar design. Both these projects put together make it one of the largest railway electrification projects in the world, covering 1337 route km with over 3000 track km of highrise railway electrification. This section will be designed for 2x25 kV traction power systems with high-rise Overhead Equipment (OHE) suitable for double stack containers dedicated for freight transport. The scope of work includes construction of seven traction substations (TSS) out of which one TSS will be GIS based, 40 switching stations, 897 track km of OHE, SCADA works at 12 stations and an operational control centre along with the supply of all associated equipment. Traction power transformers, auto transformers and copper conductors will be imported from Japan for this project. The project is scheduled to be completed in 42 months. The project will be executed using mechanized means of OHE installation using the latest technology in railway construction. This will be a one-of-its-kind energy efficient system to be implemented for India’s rail sector. DFCCIL is a special purpose vehicle of the Indian Railways, mandated to build dedicated freight corridors. This project is funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and is part of the 1,490 km western corridor proposed between Dadri (near Delhi) and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (near Mumbai).
