Siemens Ltd said it along with another firm has bagged a Rs. 287-crore order from Nagpur Metro Rail Corp to supply signalling technology for the first two lines – North-South and East-West corridors – of the project.
The German technology company has bagged the order jointly with Spain’s Siemens Rail Automation.
“Siemens Ltd and Siemens Rail Automation SAU Spain have jointly won an order worth Rs. 287 crore. Of this, Siemens Ltds share is Rs. 146 crore,” it said in a statement.
The project comprises the deployment and installation of the communications-based train control (CBTC) solution Trainguard MT for 38.2 km of double track with 36 stations and two depots, as well as onboard equipment for 23 trains.
The East-West corridor will have 19 stations and the North-South 17 and will link the Airport with the Automotive Square, at the north of the city.
“We are delighted to have won the Nagpur Metro Rail signalling contract. The metro is a prestigious infrastructure project and we will deliver technology that employs CBTC to maximise the network capacity while minimising operational costs,” Tilak Raj Seth, Executive Vice-President, Siemens Ltd and CEO, Mobility Division in Lead Country India, said.
