Siemens consortium partners with Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation for advanced rail electrification technologies

Andre Rodenbeck, CEO of Rail Infrastructure, Siemens Mobility said: “We are proud not only to supply our state-of-the-art technologies for both lines, but also our local know-how. India’s sustainable transformation of the transport sector is in full swing, and with both projects, in the cities of Surat and Ahmedabad, the local Mass Rapid Transit systems will develop into a world-class public transportation system for the people. This will be a huge advantage for travelers but also for the environment where technology strengthens sustainability.”
The first order is for Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2, which comprises two corridors covering more than 28 kilometers and features 23 stations and one depot. The second order is for Surat Metro Phase 1 being built to serve Surat with a route length of more than 40 kilometers, covering 38 stations and two depots. In addition, Siemens Mobility will also be providing advanced digital solutions including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) for both metros, to increase reliability, energy efficiency and productivity.
Well-established presence in India
The history of Siemens in India dates back to 1867, when Werner von Siemens and his brothers built the Indo-European telegraph line from London to Calcutta. Siemens has been supporting operators including Indian Railways with the latest technologies for seven decades and offers a full range of intelligent and efficient technologies and solutions for passenger and freight transportation, including rail infrastructure and rolling stock. Siemens Mobility was recently awarded the largest locomotive order in company history and single largest order in the history of Siemens India. The €3 billion project includes the delivery of 1,200 electric locomotives. The Indian Government and Indian Railways are committed to investing in state-of-the-art products to reach net zero CO2 emissions by 2030.
