L&T has won two large World Bank financed lumpsum turnkey contracts having a total order of approximately 100 million USD from Songas Limited, Tanzania. AES Corporation is the sponsor and equity holder in the project.

This project will help promote sustainable infrastructure growth and provide increased access of electricity. Major gas fields were discovered in the Songo Songo Island region of Tanzania in the 1970s. These gas fields will now be utilized to develop cheap and reliable power by displacing expensive liquid fuel by indigenous natural gas in Tanzania.

The project involves collecting gas from 3 offshore wells and 2 onshore wells, processing it in the gas plant on the Songo Songo Island, exporting it to mainland via a sub marine line and then piping it around 215 km to Dar Es Salaam via a cross country pipeline. This gas will be utilized in the 112 MW existing gas turbine power plant in Ubungo power plant, and Twiga cement plant on Wazo Hill.

In this project, L&T has total responsibility including onshore and offshore surveys, residual process engineering, detailed engineering, procurement, supply, fabrication, construction, commissioning and performance testing. The Oil & Gas and Special projects Division of L&T's E&C Division and ECC Division will execute this project.

"The project paves way for yet another foray of ours in the international arena and we have a very dedicated team in place to execute this project" said Mr. K Venkataramanan, Member of the Board and President (Operations).
In the execution of this project, L&T will deploy its state-of-the-art IT systems including 3-D plant modeling, advanced engineering and simulation software, enterprise resource planning, e-procurement and modern communication facilities.
