Engineering and construction giant Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said its consortium with Sojitz Corp of Japan has won a Rs 1,213 crore project from Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Ltd (DFCCIL).
The design and build order involves electrification works for a 422 km section of the western dedicated freight corridor from Vadodara in Gujarat to Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in Maharashtra, it said.
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.
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, it added.
Traction power transformers, auto transformers and copper conductors will be imported from Japan for this project, it added.
