Salasar Techno Engineering Pvt. Ltd. on Friday evening emerged as the lowest bidder for the 25 KV OHE electrification and SCADA system (Package DE-02) at the Delhi Metro Violet Line’s soon-to-be remodeled Ajronda and Sarita Vihar train depots.
This package of the 65.1 km Phase 4 project is the 2nd of 44 civil & system packages which will be funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Its execution will enable the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to repurpose Sarita Vihar Depot for stabling and maintaining trains on the upcoming 20.201 km Silver Line which will connect Aerocity – Tughlakabad.
DMRC had invited bids for it in October 2020 with an estimate of Rs 23.97 crore and completion period of 36 months. Technical bids were opened on October 16, 2020 to reveal 6 bidders.
Financial Bid Values:
|Salasar Techno Engineering Pvt. Ltd.||Rs. 23.97 crore|
