French multinational Alstom has outbid the Chinese publicly traded rolling stock (metro coaches) manufacturer CRRC Corporation to bag a contract worth 315 million euros from the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) for the 33.5-km Metro 3 between Cuffe Parade & SEEPZ.
The company will supply 248 Metro cars. There are 31 lightweight, fully-furnished modern passenger trains of eight cars each. The formal contract was signed on Monday in the presence of MMRC Managing Director, Ashwini Bhide.
Alstom MD (India and South Asia), Alain Spohr told DNA, "The first train sets will arrive in Mumbai in 2020, and deliveries for all train sets will be completed mid-2022. The designing and development of the Metro cars will be undertaken out of Alstom's Bangalore engineering centre while state of the art rolling stock will be manufactured at Sri City unit near Chennai. The company will also train MMRC personnel."
