ETA Engineering Pvt. Ltd. earlier this month was declared as the lowest bidder to install the electrical and mechanical system, environment control system and tunnel ventilation system at 4 underground stations of Delhi Metro’s 23.622 km Silver Line (Line-10).
This mostly underground line of Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 project in South Delhi will connect Aerocity – Tughalakabad via 16 stations. 12 of those stations will be underground and are being constructed through civil packages DC-07 (Afcons Infrastructure), DC-08 (J Kumar Infraprojects) and DC-09 (Larsen & Toubro).
The package’s brief scope doesn’t name the 4 stations, but I hear they’re Aerocity, Mahipalpur, Vasant Kunj and Kishangarh. If someone can confirm, then drop a comment below.
DMRC had invited tenders for this contract DE-11, funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in July 2022 with a 2.95 year deadline and unknown estimate. Technical bids were opened in October 2022 to reveal 7 bidders.
Financial Bid Values
|Firm||Bid (Rs. Crore)|
|Universal MEP Projects & Engineering Services||212.11|
|Larsen & Toubro (L&T)||240.07|
|Sterling And Wilson (SWPL)||259.18|
DMRC’s Brief Scope: Design verification, Detail engineering, SITC of Electrical and Mechanical system, DG set, Environment control system, Tunnel ventilation system and Building Management System for 4 underground stations of line-10 of Phase-IV of Delhi MRTS.
DMRC’s budgeted estimate remains unknown to me, so I can’t provide an assessment on the chances of a contract getting awarded. We’ll have to wait and watch to see how this plays out.
The line has another similar but larger system package (DE-11) that includes 7 underground and 4 elevated stations between Chhatarpur and Tughlakabad. Technical bid evaluation for that is currently underway since October 2022.
