KEC International in mid-October was awarded a Rs. 68.98 crore contract for the 25 kV overhead equipment and 33 kV auxiliary power supply system (Package DE-14) of Delhi Metro Line-7’s extension.
Besides electrifying the 12.098 km Maujpur – Majlis Park section, the scope of this Phase 4 project’s package also includes electrical augmentation works at Mukundpur Depot.
