Alstom to equip India rail

Posted on September 17, 2009

On Wednesday, Alstom Transport and its partners signed a contract with Bangalore Metro Rail Corp. Ltd. to equip the first two lines of the new metro system with an advanced train control solution.

 

The contract is valued at a total of $133 million, of which Alstom’s consolidated share is approximately $83.8 million.

 

Alstom will provide the design, manufacture, supply, installing, testing and commissioning of the train control and signaling system for line 1 and 2 of the new metro system. It includes the Urbalis 200 Automatic Train Control system which will ensure optimal safety, flexible operations, and heightened passenger comfort.

 

The Bangalore Metro has been designed for a capacity of 40,000 passengers per hour and per direction. The number of passengers expected to travel on the metro network every day is estimated at 1 million, and could reach 1.6 million in 2021.

 

Bangalore lines 1 and 2 will enter into revenue services in September 2012.
