The option include supply of 25 additional sets
Alstom has been awarded a contract worth €85 million from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to supply 25 advanced metros to Kochi Metro Rail Limited. The first train sets are expected to be delivered in early 2016.
More than 50 customers worldwide have opted for Alstoms metros, and over 4 000 Metropolis cars are in daily operation.
They will operate over the fully elevated new Kochi metro rail network which is 25.6 km long with 22 stations. This newly built line is expected to carry up to 15 000 travelers per hour and direction.
Alstom will be responsible for the design, manufacturing, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 25 normal track gauge trains with an option to supply 25 additional metro sets. Each train will be composed of 3 cars, about 65 m long and with a capacity to carry up to 975 passengers.
The metro cars will run at maximum operational speed of 80 km/h, and will be fitted with air conditioning and passenger information systems for a high level of passenger comfort. They will be manufactured in the newly built facility of Sricity, in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Alstom’s Sricity industrial site is the company’s flagship facility sprawled over an area of 280 000 square feet and is playing a key role in Alstom’s expansion in the region.
