NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Alstom has been awarded contracts worth €54 million to design, manufacture, supply, install, test, and commission train-control and signalling solution of Delhi MRTS Phase-IV from Mukundpur to Maujpur (Line 7 ext.) and Aerocity to Tughlakabad Corridor (Line 10) train.

Alstom’s scalable communications-Based train control solutions (CBTC), which work in conjunction with its Automatic Train Supervision (ATS) system, will be installed on these lines.

This method is estimated to reduce energy consumption by up to 30%. As a result, CBTC can significantly increase the metro lines’ capacity, effectiveness, dependability, and safety while lowering operating expenses for the operators.

Alstom is certainly the market leader for CBTC and a solid leader in the mass transit sector. The company has more than 30 years of expertise in radio CBTC and has been selected for 160 CBTC metro lines, with more than 90 currently in use, Worldwide. Currently, 18 metro lines in India are outfitted with world-class signalling technologies from Alstom.

Alstom has an extended relationship with Delhi Metro, providing the network with more than 800 operational metro vehicles. A contract for the design, manufacture, procurement, testing, and commissioning of 312 standard gauge metro vehicles for the Delhi Metro Phase IV expansion was also given to the company in November 2022.

Alstom and DMRC have previously worked together on numerous other projects, including the supply and commissioning of train control and signalling systems for the Red Line (L1), Yellow Line (L2), Green Line (L5), Violet Line (L6) and Pink Line (L7) during Phase I, II and III.

The current Delhi Metro network covers 391 kilometres and has 286 stations. The network has now extended outside the limits of Delhi to Gurgaon, Faridabad, Bahadurgarh, and Ballabhgarh in Haryana, Noida, Greater Noida, and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.
