MUMBAI(Metro Rail News): Bombardier Transportation has emerged as the lowest bidder to design and supply 234 metro coaches (Rolling Stock Package MRS2) for Mumbai Metro’s under construction 35.2 km Line-4 & 4A (Green Line) which will connect Wadala – Kasaravadavali – Gaimukh through 34 stations.
“Bombardier Transportation has been named the lowest bidder by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) for Mumbai Metro’s 35-km long Line-4 & 4A (Green Line) project which will connect the areas of Wadala – Vikhroli – Kasaravadavali – Gaimukh through 34 stations”, the firm said in a statement.
The project involves design and supply of 234 metro cars and Bombardier will execute the project in accordance with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship ‘Make in India’ guidelines. These BOMBARDIER MOVIA metro cars will be produced at our Savli and Maneja sites near Vadodara in India. The trains will be designed at our engineering centre in Hyderabad, India with Train Control & Management System (TCMS) delivered by our two centres in Vadodara. The project award will be subsequently announced by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).

Since 2002, Bombardier has been supporting the Mumbai rail ecosystem by delivering and maintaining the Traffic Management system (TMS) for Mumbai’s Western and Central Railways. In addition, around 100 commuter trains of 12 cars each are equipped with Bombardier’s MITRAC propulsion system moving safely 7.8 million people (pre-covid) who travel daily on Mumbai suburban rail network.

“Bombardier has delivered 816 metro cars to Delhi Metro till date. Since the first Bombardier MOVIA metro train was introduced on Delhi Metro’s network in 2009, our fleet has travelled around 150 million kilometres and moved more than four billion passengers safely and comfortably”, the statement added.

In May 2020, Bombardier signed a contract with National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) for supplying 210 regional commuter and intracity cars with comprehensive maintenance for India’s first Regional Rapid Transit System and unveiled the train design in September 2020. In addition, we signed a contract with Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) in July 2020 to supply 201 metro cars and signalling system for the Agra-Kanpur metro project.

Bombardier is the only rail supplier in India to deliver a broad portfolio of rail solutions in the segments of metro and commuter cars, rail equipment, signalling and services.
