Seven companies submit bids for Navi Mumbai MetroA group of seven companies, including top multinationals, have submitted their bids to provide rolling stock for the first 11km rail line between Belapur and Pendhar via Kharghar and Panchanand residential area near Taloja.


The consortia which have bid for the project include L&T-BEML-Invensys, Bombardier-Isolux, Ansaldo STS-TATA Projects-CNR, Siemens-Siemens AG, ALSTOM Consortium, the CAF Consortium and The Hyundai Rotem - Balfour Betty consortium. One of these will be selected over a period of three months. The metro's civil construction and rolling stock installation will be carried out by separate developers unlike in Mumbai.


The City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco), a year ago, started civil construction for foundation, pillars, via-duct and stations costing around Rs 1,000 crore andmore than half of the foundations have already been laid till today.


The trains, communication system, signalling, tracks and automatic fare collection will be part of the new rolling stock contract, which will cost Cidco around Rs 920 crore. The first metro line is being built with a cash contract of around Rs 2,000 crore and will be completely owned by the Cidco.


"We are looking forward to commence the first line by mid-2014," said Cidco MD Tanaji Satre.
