CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): On Tuesday, Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. awarded Alstom Transport India a contract worth Rs. 946.92 crore to produce and supply 78 coaches (Package ARE03A) for Chennai Metro’s Line-4 (CMRL).

The 118.9 km Phase 2 project’s route with 26 3-car trains will run between Poonamallee Bypass and Light House, stopping at 28 stations (18 elevated and 10 underground), and would be stabled and maintained at Poonamallee Depot in western Chennai.

In December 2020, CMRL issued a tender invitation for this package of rolling stock. The procurement procedure was abruptly terminated in November 2021 after receiving 3 offers in September for “administrative concerns.”

A short while later, bids were requested again with a deadline of 1960 days (5.37 years), and this time, CMRL received three offers from Alstom, BEML, and Titagarh. In April, financial bids were opened, with Alstom emerging as the lowest bidder.

Rs. 946,92,55,624.00 (INR 7,31,25,53,552 + EURO 2,36,01,312 + SEK 2,02,10,441) was the total amount paid for the contract.
Phase II / ARE03A package

Design, production, supply, testing, commissioning, and training of staff for Chennai Metro Project Phase II’s standard gauge metro rolling stock (electrical multiple units) are included in the brief scope of Chennai metro project.

CMRL intends to operate these trains in a DMC + TC + DMC configuration with the capability of operating at Grade of Automation level-4 for “driverless” Unattended Train Operations (UTO).
