The rolling stock is being supplied by CSR Nanjing (China)

For line 3 that'll be mostly U/G (with a short elevated section) the supplier for rolling stock may change.

Wastewater treatment for the Mumbai Metro

On 1 October 2012, Xylem, a water technology provider based in the United States, announced that it had been awarded a contract to develop wastewater treatment and recycling systems for the Mumbai Metro.
The value of the contract was undisclosed. The system will incorporate a 1.2-million-litre-capacity sewage treatment plant with wastewater recycling capabilities; trials of the plant were commissioned by late November 2012.
The plant will be equipped with Xylemís Sanitaire wastewater treatment technology, which is expected to help the Mumbai Metro save up to 1.2 million litres of water a day.

MMRDA inks MoU with Transport for London for metro network

MUMBAI: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) today entered into an agreement with UK body, Transport for London, for development of 150 km metro rail network here.

The MoU, which aims at setting up a framework of cooperation between the two sides for metro development and operation, was signed in the presence of Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan during the meeting of a delegation of CEOs from UK.

The delegation is accompanying the visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The MoU will facilitate exchange of information and personnel for transfer of latest technology in this area. This will help MMRDA to implement and operationalise its plans of 150-km long metro network in Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

"The UK business community's participation in mega infrastructure initiatives in Maharashtra, particularly in the Mumbai metropolitan region, will definitely encourage the state government to plan more such initiatives for Mumbai's development", Chavan said, adding his government wants to transform Mumbai into a world class metropolis with globally comparable infrastructure and quality of life.

It is estimated that USD 40 billion investment in transport and civic infrastructure will be needed to realise this goal, an official said.

The visiting UK delegation was shown a film "Magnetic Maharashtra".

The visiting team of businessmen expressed their keen interest in development of infrastructure in India and especially in Maharashtra, he said.

David Waboso of Transport for London (TfL) briefed the meeting about the UK agency.

"TfL is one of the leading world integrated transport authorities and operates buses, trams, light rail, heavy rail, taxis, river boats, streets, congestion charge for the Greater London area", he said.

The TfL also operates London Underground Metro which is world's oldest and second largest service in terms of kilometres.

Battery-operated shunting vehicles being used for the movement for coaches and trains in the Versova yard, back in Mumbai after a 100 years.

By Rajendra B Aklekar | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA



After almost a century, battery-operated trains are back in Mumbai. The Mumbai metro, which is preparing final runs between Andheri and Ghatkopar, has procured a few battery-operated shunting vehicles that are used in the Versova yard for movement of trains and coaches.



"In the absence of diesel and electricity, these shunting engines are very handy for pushing and pulling empty wagons and test trains. Ten trains of four coaches each manufactured by CSR Nanjing in China have already arrived at Versova and are undergoing various trials. A battery-operated vehicle is used on inspection lines and within depot at grade level only. They can't be used on main lines or gradients due to their limited power," a senior metro official said.



It was nearly a century ago that such battery trains ran on the Western Railway. Archives show that the Bombay Baroda and Central India Railway, now called as Western Railway, had two battery-powered shunters for use in yards at Bombay. There were only two of this class and they were imported from England in 1927. These were used in the period when the railways was moving from steam locomotives to electric power. It was a year later in 1928 that the Western Railway was electrified.



Sources said there were also a few battery-powered locomotives used on the Gwalior lines built by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited in 1987.



This is another old railway relic that the Mumbai metro has revived after a century, the first being old railway turntables, a rare 19th century technology that metro put in service a year ago. Turntables are used to move trains to change tracks. Sources in Metro One said the old and trusted technology has been modernised for the city’s new metro rail lines for use once the trains start running regularly.
