Delhi subcontract

01 Aug 2002

Korean rolling stock builder Rotem has awarded Bharat Earth Movers a US$8·6m subcontract to manufacture 180 electric multiple-unit cars at its Bangalore plant. The steel-bodied vehicles for Delhi Metro Rail Corp will have glass fibre-reinforced plastic interiors, and BEML hopes to use the production line to supply similar vehicles to other Indian cities which are planning metro lines.

  • Ceremonies were held on July 18 to launch the first tunnel boring machine for Delhi's north-south underground line.
