Overseas Orders_ProjectsToday

 

The 46 contracts worth Rs 11,391 crore awarded in May 2011, indicated the overall slowdown seen in project investment activities in the recent months. In the same month of the preceding year, 79 contracts worth Rs 21,916 crore were bagged.

 

The overall slackness was not limited to Indian shores only. In May 2011, Indian companies managed to bag only four foreign contracts. IL&FS Engineering & Construction Company secured a Rs 450-crore contract from Prime Star Energy FZE for development, operations and maintenance of a terminal for oil and oil products of a storage tank terminal at Fujairah, UAE.

Electricity sector, which always was on the forefront in terms of contracts awarded, saw tardiness catching up in May 2011. Only five contracts worth Rs 4,384.18 crore were finalised. A Rs 3,500-crore contract bagged by L&T from PPN Power Generating Company was the month's largest. The scope of work includes design, detailed engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the 1,080 MW gas based power plant in Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu. Lanco Solar, in partnership with Juwi Solar GmbH, won a contract valued at Rs 884.18 crore from the Maharashtra State Power Generation Company for setting up a 75 MW photovoltaic solar power project at Dhule in Maharashtra.
