DELHI (Metro Rail News): KTK Group Co. Ltd., a China-based company, has recently won a contract worth Rs. 236.25 crore from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to set up Platform Screen Doors on three lines of Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 project.

The scope of work involves designing, manufacturing, supplying, installing, testing, and commissioning of both the Half-height platform gate system and the Full height platform screen door system for the Mukundpur to Maujpur, Aerocity to Tughlakabad, and Janakpuri west to R.K. Ashram Marg corridor of Phase-4 of Delhi MRTS.

This project is a significant part of the ongoing construction of Delhi’s Phase 4, which includes a new Silver Line (23.62 km Aerocity to Tughlakabad), as well as extensions of the Magenta Line (28.92 km Janakpuri West to R.K.Ashram) and Pink Line (12.58 km Mukundpur to Maujpur).

The installation of Half-height Platform Gate Systems will be done at 27 elevated stations across all three lines. Meanwhile, 18 underground stations on the Silver and Magenta lines will get Full-height PSDs. The total contract value is approximately INR 74,24,79,000 along with USD 1,96,32,000.

DMRC had called for tenders for this contract (Package DS-08) back in September 2022, setting a deadline of 1095 days (3 years). After technical evaluations in December 2022, four bidders emerged. However, only two firms, KTK Group Co. and Nanjing Kangnin Mechanical & Electrical Co., met the tender conditions. The financial bids of these two firms were revealed in July 2023, with KTK Group being the lowest bidder, narrowly beating Nanjing Kangni.

The purpose of these Platform Screen Doors is to enhance safety by preventing accidents and suicides related to passenger movement. Additionally, they will contribute to reducing maintenance costs in underground stations for DMRC. By improving the station environment, these doors will lead to lower air-conditioning and ventilation expenses.
