The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd has signed a contract with Alstom for its CBTC signalling system. The system is for the city’s metro line 3. The contract is worth more than 100 million euros for Alstom. This new contract follows others signed earlier in 2018 for rolling stock and power supply on the same line.

CBTC Signalling System – Alstom’s Urbalis 400

Alstom will install its latest CBTC signalling system, the Urbalis 400, on line 3 of the Mumbai metro. The contract includes a number of provisions. In particular, Alstom will be responsible for unmanned train operation, computer-based interlocking and centralised train supervision. Furthermore, Alstom will provide platform screen doors and the electrical and mechanical supervisory control and data acquisition system.

Alstom’s Urbalis 400 signalling system helps to optimise performance and capacity. This is because the system features functions that improve headway and average speed performance. It will contribute to reducing congestion in Mumbai, particularly during rush hour. The system is currently in operation in more than 30 cities.

Alain Spohr, Alstom Managing Director India and South Asia, said:

“Alstom is extremely proud to have won three big contracts for Line 3 of Mumbai Metro, emerging as the partner of choice for this prestigious project. This major signalling contract confirms the trust our customer MMRCL has in us. This is an excellent opportunity for Alstom to showcase its breadth of expertise and reinforce our goal of being the preferred partner of cities, countries and operators as they face the rapidly evolving challenges of urban mobility.”

Alstom has previously provided its CBTC signalling system in the Indian cities of Kochi and Lucknow. Furthermore, the company says 25 percent of the world’s radio CBTC systems feature Alstom’s Urbalis solutions.
