L&T Special Steels and Heavy Forgings, a joint venture of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), has a state-of-the-art facility and is qualified to produce a wide range of critical heavy forgings for the nuclear, hydrocarbon, oil & gas and strategic sectors. It has received an order worth ₹442 Crore from NPCIL to supply forgings for steam generators.
