SYSTRA-RITES-DB JV Wins Hyderabad Metro Airport Line’s General Consultant Contract


SYSTRA – RITES – DB Engineering JV has been declared as the preferred bidder for the General Consultant (GC) contract of Hyderabad Metro’s 31 km Airport Express Line.

This semi high-speed rail line will connect Mindspace Junction with Rajiv Gandhi International Airport via 10 stations and be developed under Hyderabad Metro’s Phase 2 project by Hyderabad Airport Metro Ltd (HAML).

Per HAML’s MD’s tweet last night, SYSTRA – RITES – DB consortium recorded the highest technical score and also placed the lowest financial bid at Rs. 98.54 crore to beat 4 other consortia for the GC contract.

HAML had invited expression of interest (EOI cum RfQ) in December 2022 with a 36 month assignment period which received applications from 5 consortia. In January 2023, the same 5 bidders were invited to submit bids in the the RfP (Request for Participation) round.

I don’t have technical scores, financial bid values or final total scores of all bidders. If someone does, then leave a comment below or shoot me a message via the Contact page. I’d like to add it in here for record keeping.
