The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) awarded India’s first monorail project in Mumbai to a joint consortium between SCOMI and Larsen & Toubro. The project will have two lines and cover 19 kilometers with 17 stations when phase two is completed.
Consort Digital is an established TETRA system integrator and will be responsible for supply, installation, integration and commissioning of the entire project. DAMM will supply a TETRA infrastructure to meet the requirements of the customer for a feature-rich, reliable and safe communications system. The TETRA system is integrated to the signaling system, public announcement system, onboard train communications system, telephony system and centralized recording system.
“Award of the phase two contract demonstrates the successful and reliable operation of the DAMM solution deployed for the first phase since 2012,” said Devdarsh Jain, director marketing, Consort Digital. “The project will be completed in record time due to modularity and ease of deployment of the DAMM outdoor base stations.”
Each monorail with four coaches will have a capacity to accommodate about 600 passengers, thereby carrying nearly 300,000 commuters on a daily basis in the proposed route.
