India: Alstom has been awarded a contract worth 220 million euros to design and manufacture 234 metro cars for Lines 4 and 4A of the Mumbai Metro.
The client, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has chosen Alstom to design, manufacture, supply, test and commission the metro cars and provide staff training.
Bombardier Transportation was the original bidder for the metro car contract. Rival bidder CRRC did not conform to the bid requirements and was ruled out. Following Alstom’s acquisition of Bombardier Transportation in January, Alstom has now been able to move forward with the bid and become the successful contractor.
“These are exciting times, and this first order, following our merger with Bombardier Transportation demonstrates our continued commitment towards partnering in the country’s Make-in-India mission. We are glad to have been awarded this prestigious project by MMRDA and look forward to commencing work on this. Alstom is proud to play a part in strengthening the country’s infrastructure and providing world-class mobility solutions to the commercial capital of India.”
Line 4 of the Mumbai Metro measures 35.3km. It is an elevated corridor with 32 stations. The planned opening of the line is 2022. It will connect Thane and Wadala.
Alstom is also building the rolling stock for Mumbai’s Metro Line 3.
