Alstom has been awarded a contract by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) for providing power supply and traction electrification for Bangalore Metro Project under Phase-II.

The work will be implemented on 33 km extension to Bangalore Metro under Phase-II. The work will entail an investment of EUR 71 million.

Phase-II encompasses extension of Bangalore Metro’s existing North-South and East-West corridors, translating to a substantial increase in the reach of the Metro and reduction of road congestion.

The scope of the contract includes engineering, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 750 V DC third-rail traction electrification, construction of 33 kV/415 V of 30 auxiliary substations and 26 DC traction substations of 33 kV/750 V.

Alstom will work on integrating this new infrastructure with the existing system on Phase-I lines including augmentation of SCADA system. The execution of this project will be completed in five phases with commissioning of the first 6.5 km stretch expected by the end of 2019. The new line, once commissioned, will bring in the much-needed flexibility in the network while significantly reducing vehicular traffic in the city.

Globally, Alstom designs, builds, delivers, tests and commissions all types of rail electrification infrastructure with a strong focus on customer needs and the capability of offering maintenance of the entire system.
