RT Vision Wins Delhi Metro Dwarka ECC Station’s PSD Contract

RT Vision Technologies on June 14 emerged as the lowest bidder for the platform screen door contract at Dwarka ECC Station on the Delhi Metro Airport Express Line’s new 1.878 km underground extension to Sector 25.

DMRC invited bids for this small-value systems-work in December 2020 with an estimated cost of Rs. 7.71 crore and 12 month deadline. Technical bids were opened in February to reveal 4 bidders:

  • Longlasst inc.
  • River Engineering Pvt. Ltd.
  • RT Vision Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
  • Saini Electrical and Engineering Works

The other 3 bidders were disqualified during technical bid evaluation and their financial bids were not opened.

RT Vision Technologies’ Bid: Rs. 6,93,72,034.46 (6.93 crore)

Package: CS52R

Brief Scope: Design, Manufacture, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of Full Height Platform Screen Doors at Dwarka Sector 25 Station of Extension of Airport Express Line Delhi MRTS project of Phase-III. (see detailed scope)

RT Vision’s bid was well below DMRC’s estimate and they should receive its contract in the coming weeks. Their website suggests they are a major signaling and telecom equipment supplier to the Indian Railways. They haven’t supplied PSDs to any MRTS project, so this will be unchartered territory unless they’ve tied up with a partner.

Anyhow – this small extension, being built entirely by the cut and cover method, has been under construction by YFC – MBZ JV through Phase 3’s Package CC-127 since January 2018 with a completion period of 30 months. An old image from inside the tunnel can be viewed here. At this time, I see this extension opening up no sooner than 2023.

    2023??

    January 2018 + 30 months = July 2020.
    So, construction is already delayed by over 1 year..

    Wont Modi inaugurate IICC by/before August next year? Can’t this metro section be ready by then?

    Poor contract management by DMRC; such delays can’t be attributed to the pandemic..

      Agree.. DMRC should expedite the work on this stretch so it can open near to the opening of IICC next year.

    I need one clarification. If CMRL decides to install PSDs in the existing phase 1 elevated stations can they install them without stopping operations? Is it first of all viable? Have come to know that all the elevated stations of phase 2 will have Half height PSDs.

    Hi, hope you are doing well. If possible, can you share an update about the Punjabi Bagh interchange construction. If you can do an article with the latest photos it would be great. I have been sitting at home for the last 6 months and haven’t crossed that area for quite some time. Thanks and Regards!
