ABB wins Indian metro rail order

ABB's Indian subsidiary has won a 508 million rupee (SFr21 million) order to supply a turnkey electrification package to Deli Metro Rail.

The order is to be completed by 2003 and will be funded by the Japanese Bank of International Cooperation.

"The scope includes the complete supply, installation, testing and commissioning of traction electrification, power supply and distribution, as well as the supervisory control and data acquisition systems," the company said in a statement.

ABB went on to point out that the package would be installed on the rail corridor between Shahdara and Trinigar (in Delhi).

The Delhi Metro is expected to carry 20,000 commuters an hour on each rail corridor when fully operational.
