Bengaluru: Chinese firm to make new Namma Metro coaches; they may be built in Andhra
BENGALURU: Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) has awarded a contract to China’s CRRC Corporation Ltd to provide 216 coaches.
BMRCL officials said CRRC’s subsidiary, CRRC Nanjing Puzhen Co Ltd, received the contract to supply rolling stock for Metro's Phase 2 project. “CRRC is setting up a plant in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh. They have committed to manufacture 34 (204 coaches) out of 36 (216 coaches) train sets in India. The awarded cost is almost Rs 235 crore less than that of L2 (second lowest tender) cost. The supplies will start in the third quarter of 2021,” BMRCL managing director Ajay Seth told TOI.
BMRCL had set deadlines for completion of the upcoming lines: Yelachenahalli-Anjanapura Township in August 2020, Mysuru Road-Kengeri in October 2020, Byappanahalli-Whitefield in August 2021 and Nagasandra-BIEC in January 2022. Standalone lines RV Road-Bommasandra and Gottigere-Nagawara are expected to be ready in November 2021 and June 2024, respectively.
BMRCL为即将建成的线路设定了最后期限：2020年8月建成Yelachenahalli-Anjanapura段，2020年10月建成Mysuru Road-Kengeri段, 2021年8月建成Byappanahalli-Whitefield,段 2022年1月建成Nagasandra-BIEC段。独立路线RV Road-Bommasandra和Gottigere-Nagawara预计分别在2021年11月和2024年6月完成。
CRRC also suppled rolling stock to Metro systems in Mumbai, Gurgaon, Navi Mumbai, Kolkata, Noida and Nagpur. In March 2017, BEML received the contract to supply 150 coaches to convert 50 3-coach trains on both the Purple and Green Lines to 6-coach trains.
In fact, L&T, the contractor for the Vellara Junction-Pottery Town Metro stretch, is procuring tunnel boring machines (TBMs), made by China Railway Construction Heavy Industry Corporation Limited. Two TBMs have already reached Chennai port. The other two are in transit and are likely to arrive in the city in March.
事实上，Vellara juncer - pottery Town地铁段的承包商L&T正在采购隧道掘进机(TBMs)，由中国铁建重工有限公司制造。两辆隧道掘进机已经抵达金奈港。另外两辆正在运输途中，可能在3月份抵达该市。

Chinese firm will do setup in India with huge cost and supply coaches at half of cost. Any fool will able to figure out that it will be imported from China and assembled in India.

Chinese will quote low and manufacturing will be given to them. As usual our people lose out on jobs.
Ramesh Sargam • Bangalore • 16 hours ago
But time not ripe or right to bring in Chinese tech experts to set up factory at Andhra as corona virus has not come under control in China.
