Alstom is proud to be associated with the Bangalore metro's much-awaited launch of operations on the Green Line that will connect Nagasandra in North Bangalore with Yelachanahalli in the South, the last section of Bangalore Metro Phase 1.  Inaugurated by Honble President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee in the presence of Shri. M. Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister for Urban Development, Housing, Urban Poverty Alleviation, Information & Broadcasting, India, Shri. Siddaramaiah, Chief Minister of Karnataka and other dignitaries, this milestone is a clear illustration of Alstoms global capabilities out of its Bangalore Engineering and Innovation Centre in India.

As part of the contract, valued at a total of 114 million (INR 710 crores), awarded by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) in 2009, Alstom provided the design, manufacture, supply, installing, testing and commissioning of the train control and signalling & telecommunications systems that have been deployed by engineering and R&D team in Bangalore.  They equip two corridor lines (42 km, 41 stations) including two depots, one Operation Control Centre (OCC) and one Back up Operation Control Center (BCC). It includes the Urbalis 200 Automatic Train Control system which will ensure optimal safety, flexible operations and heightened passenger comfort. This solution has already been successfully deployed in many cities around the world and in cities like Delhi, Jaipur and already operational sections of Bangalore Metro. 

Commenting on the occasion, Mr Bharat Salhotra, Managing Director, Alstom in India and South Asia said: it is our great pleasure to be associated with this prestigious project and a matter of great pride for the team to see the project come to life. Bangalore is home to our talented engineering base which has been instrumental in bringing the project to successful completion. We at Alstom are working tirelessly to ensure our teams in Bangalore bring out the best-in-class, competitive and sustainable mobility solutions of the future. 

Alstom is committed to evolving Indias urban transport infrastructure requirements as the country embarks on its journey towards managing its growing cities. The successful deployment of this solution showcases the close co-operation between several Alstom units: Bangalore and Coimbatore in India, Saint-Ouen and Villeurbanne in France, and Bologna in Italy.
