ABB wins $15 million order in India to power metro for Jaipur
ABB will supply 11 auxiliary substations with a rating of 33kV/415V
Zurich, April 12, 2012 — ABB won an order worth $ 15 million from Delhi Metro Rail Corp. Limited 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 is expected to carry about 11,000 commuters per hour on each rail corridor when fully operational, reducing road traffic bottlenecks and lowering carbon emissions 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 Mass Rapid Transport System. 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 SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) solution, which enables the monitoring and control of field equipment and key components of the power distribution system.
This facilitates smooth operations and enables proactive measures to avoid service interruptions, thereby enhancing performance and optimizing cost-efficiency.
ABB will also deliver key products including the switchgear, dry type transformers and distribution equipment.
