L&T Awarded Chennai Metro Line-4’s Telecom Contract ASA-05

Another contract down! Larsen & Toubro last week was awarded the telecommunication contract (Package ASA05) for Chennai Metro’s 26.09 km Line-4 which will connect Light House – Poonamallee Bypass through 30 stations.

Chennai Metro Rail Ltd (CMRL) had invited tenders for this critical Chennai Metro Phase 2 system in April 2022, financed by New Development Bank (NDB), with an unknown estimate and 2180 (5.97 year) deadline.

Technical bids were opened in October to reveal 7 bidders. During evaluation, the bids submitted by 3W Networks FZCO, HFCL Ltd. and Tata Advanced Systems Ltd. were found to be non-compliant to the tender conditions.

Financial bids of the rest 4 firms (Bharat Electronics Ltd. (BEL), KEC International Ltd., Larsen and Toubro Ltd. (L&T) and ST Engineering Electronics Ltd.) were opened on February 13 to reveal L&T as the lowest bidder.

I don’t have bid values for this tender or even the final contract value which I estimate to be roughly Rs 150 crore. If someone does, then leave a comment below or shoot me a message via the Contact page. I’d like to add it in here for record keeping.

April 8 Update: Contract value is Rs. 102 crore. LOA was issued on March 28.

Tender: CMRL/PH_II/SYS/C4-ASA05/2022

Brief Scope: Design, Manufacture, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of Telecommunication System for CMRL Phase II Corridor 4.
