Four firms have submitted bids for the 25 kV OHE & 33 kV power supply contract of the 65.1 km Delhi Metro Phase 4 project‘s elevated corridors after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened technical bids on Thursday.
Delhi’s new Phase 4 is well under construction and includes 1 new line (23.62 km Silver Line: Aerocity – Tughlakabad) and the extension of the Magenta Line (28.92 km Janakpuri West – R.K. Ashram) and Pink Line (12.58 km Mukundpur – Maujpur).
DMRC invited tenders for this major systems contract in February 2022 with an unknown estimate and 1440 day (3.95 year) deadline.

- Siemens Ltd.
Scope: Design, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of 25 kV Overhead Equipment (OHE), 33 kV Auxiliary Power Supply for Elevated Corridors and SCADA System for both Elevated and Underground Corridors of Delhi Metro MRTS Phase-IV
The bids have now been sent for technical bid evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor.
This package is just one of the many electrification-related packages in Phase 4. Interestingly the OHE electrification package for remodeling Ajronda and Sarita Vihar Depots was also numbered DE-02. That contract was won by Salasar Techno Engineering in January 2021.
