Alstom bags order for 78 Delhi Metro Phase IV cars

Alstom has been awarded the contract by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to design manufacture, supply, test, commission 312 standard gauge metro cars for the Delhi Metro Phase IV expansion.

The order, worth €312 million, includes design and manufacturing of 234 standard gauge metro cars for the Line 7 extension (Pink Line 12.558 km) on the Mukundpur-Maujpur corridor and the Line 8 extension (Magenta Line 28.92 km) for the Janakpuri West-RK Ashram corridor.

The company will design and manufacture of 78 standard gauge metro cars for the 23.622 km Silver Line between Aerocity and Tughlakabad, including 15-year maintenance of these cars. Alstom will supply its Metropolis trainsets for this order. Alstom has delivered more than 800 metro cars that are in service for the Delhi Metro network. The new trains will be built at Alstom’s urban rolling stock manufacturing site in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh.

Olivier Loison, managing director, Alstom India Cluster, said, “Delhi-NCR is amongst the largest urban clusters in the world. Faced with the realities of climate change, such megacities need reliable and sustainable public transport solutions. Alstom is pleased to continue the partnership with Delhi Metro. Our trains have a high recyclability of all materials and low-weight design to reduce energy consumption that will greatly contribute to minimising environmental impact in the region.”
