STRABAG Wins Delhi – Meerut RRTS’ TVS & ECS Package 23

The winner for another RRTS systems package is now known.

STRABAG International GmbH in February was awarded a Rs. 167.50 crore contract for commissioning the 82.15 km Delhi – Meerut RRTS Line‘s underground tunnel ventilation system (TVS) and environmental control system (ECS).

National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) had invited tenders (bids) for this package in July 2020 for deployment on the line’s two underground sections which have a combined length of roughly 12 km and 4 stations:

    I think that if the work goes by this speed it will be completed before deadline

    Everything is going on Meerut Line only
    The other lines(Panipat & Alwar)have vanished away

      Wait every region is being taken care of by modi govt. At least now, how the infra work can be speedily done has been made possible by visionary modi govt. So many years of neglect is being taken care of by modi govt. Jai Hind

    The contractor had taken the project in loss. Just see the budgetary estimate was 250 Cr whereas the L1 bidder quoted 167Cr.
    Either there is issue with the estimator or with the contractor who had taken the contract.
    This is a new company in Metro, which had not understood the contract properly and will give tough time to client during execution of work
