Two Chinese firms bid for 10 monorail four-car trains

China’s CRRC Corporation and BYD have submitted bids for tender floated by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) for monorail rakes. The selected company will have to supply 10 train sets. The scrutiny of financial and technical bids will begin in the first week of November 2019.

The successful bidder will supply four-car rakes 15 months after work orders are issued. The cost of a coach is estimated at Rs 10 crore, so a rake is likely to cost around Rs 40 crore. The entire 20 km monorail corridor was inaugurated after a delay of several years on 3 March 2019. It had been operational only on 8.8 km route between Chembur and Wadala depot since February 2014. Safety certification for Phase-II came in April 2018, but there were no rakes to run services.

The opening of Phase-II, up to Jacob Circle, was delayed as the operations and maintenance operator, Scomi Engineering, had failed to roll out adequate rakes. The company had received seven extensions before which the system first opened on a truncated 8.8 km route, termed as Phase-I between Chembur and Wadala depot on February 2 2014.

MMRDA terminated the contractor for failure to perform and fulfil contractual obligations on 14 December 2014. Phase-I was opened in 2014, but it was known as a joyride. The opening of the entire corridor helped attract almost 30 lakh commuters a month compared to 4.5 lakh in Phase-I.

Monorail has been the most delayed urban project in Mumbai. It was to be ready by 2010, but due to problems at the initial stage itself it was decided to launch the project in two phases: Chembur to Wadala Depot (I) and Wadala Depot to Jacob Circle (II).

In November 2007, MMRDA issued a letter of intent to consultancy firm, RITES, to prepare a techno-economic feasibility report and to assist in the bidding for India’s only monorail project in Mumbai.
