ABB Ltd. has won an order worth Rs.75 crore from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. or DMRC to provide power solutions for a planned metro rail network for Jaipur, also known as the 'pink city' and the capital of Rajasthan, a state in northern India. The order was booked in the first quarter.
The Jaipur Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) is being promoted as an eco-friendly project deploying state-of-the-art technologies and is expected to carry around 11,000 commuters per hour on each rail corridor when fully operations, reducing road traffic bottlenecks and lowering carbon emission from cars.
The turnkey project includes design, supply, installation and commissioning of essential power infrastructure for stage 1 of the East-West Corridor of the Jaipur MRTS. This section will serve eight passenger stations. ABB will supply 11 auxiliary substations with a rating of 33kV/415V.
The project scope includes electrification of overhead lines, provision of auxiliary substations and the supply of a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) solution, which enables the monitoring and control of field equipment and key components of the power distribution system. The company will also deliver key products including the switchgear, dry type transformers and distribution equipment.
At the BSE, ABB shares are currently trading at Rs.834.75, up 1.45 percent from the previous close.
