mobility technology leader Bombardier Transportation recently celebrated the
delivery of the 800th Bombardier Movia metro car to India’s Delhi Metro Rail
Corporation Ltd (DMRC). Together in partnership, Delhi Metro and Bombardier
have been supporting Delhi’s National Capital Region’s ambitious expansion
plans since 2007 and the new metros have delivered a huge capacity boost to
Delhi’s metro network.
800th metro car left Bombardier’s state-of-the-art railway vehicle
manufacturing site at Savli near Vadodara, India and it will now undergo
rigorous testing and commissioning processes before starting passenger service.
high degree of localisation at both the Savli and Maneja sites is in line with
Delhi Metro’s indigenous procurement plan that encourages local manufacturing
and the Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ programme by delivering rail
vehicles, products and solutions that are developed for both Indian and foreign
markets. Bombardier is one of Delhi Metro’s largest suppliers of rolling stock
and with over 140 km of lines operating with the globally proven Bombardier
Cityflo mass transit signalling solution, installed on Delhi Metro’s lines 5,
6, 7 and 9, makes Bombardier the largest signalling supplier for Delhi Metro.
new modern, high-capacity Movia metro vehicles for Delhi Metro integrate some
of the world's most advanced mobility technologies such as the Bombardier
Mitrac propulsion and control system and the Bombardier Flexx Metro 3000
bogies, an extremely robust and reliable design specifically adapted to suit
Delhi’s infrastructure. The new vehicles accommodate up to 740 more passengers
and once configured into eight-car train sets, carry as many as 2,960
passengers per train on three of Delhi’s busiest metro lines.
