6 firms have bid for 2 separate contracts to commission Chennai Metro line 3 and 5’s electrification system (OHE, RSS, ASS & SCADA) after Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL) opened technical bids on Monday.

Both these under construction lines of Chennai Metro’s 118.9 km Phase 2 project will run in a north-south orientation to connect Madhavaram – SIPCOT (45.813 km Line-3) and Madhavaram – Sholinganallur (47 km Line-5) with a mix of elevated & underground stations.

These 2 electrification system contracts deal with the northern portion of each line: Line-3’s 25 km Madhavaram Milk Colony – Sholinganallur section and Line-5’s 23 km Madhavaram Milk Colony – CMBT section and their common Madhavaram Depot.

All 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 for each contract.

Back in September, Linxon India was declared as the lowest bidder for the electrification contract for both lines’ southern section. Their scope includes Line-3’s 20 km Sholinganallur – SIPCOT 2 section and Line-5’s 24 km CMBT – Sholinganallur section.

Further back in May, Siemens emerged as the lowest bidder for Line-4’s electrification contract. A list of all Chennai Metro Phase 2 civil & system packages and their status can be viewed here.
