10 November 2020 – Alstom, a leader in sustainable and smart mobility, achieved another milestone today in India. It’s SriCity factory in Andhra Pradesh that manufactures Rolling Stock (Metro Trains) for Urban Metro projects, successfully completed production of its 500th Metro Car. As Alstom’s largest Urban Rolling Stock manufacturing unit in the Asia-Pacific region, this facility is delivering metro trainsets to not only Indian cities but also global ones – Chennai, Kochi, Lucknow, Mumbai, Sydney and Montreal. The currently operational metro trainsets built at this facility have clocked over 27 million kilometres cumulatively.

Known for its state-of-the-art manufacturing standards, Alstom’s SriCity facility started operations in September 2012, with manufacturing for Chennai Metro. So far, the site has recorded over 2 million manufacturing & testing hours and has a capacity to build 480 cars per annum. Most recently, after the advent of Unlock 1.0 in India, the site successfully dispatched the first batch of two trainsets for the Canadian city of Montreal (Réseau Express Métropolitain).

Presently, the site is manufacturing for Mumbai Metro L3 (Aqua Line), Montreal Metro - Réseau Express Métropolitain and Sydney Metro (City and Southwest extension). This factory also has more than 15% of women employees in various roles, as supervisors, planners, shopfloor engineers etc.

Speaking on this milestone, Alain SPOHR, Managing Director of Alstom India and South Asia said, “Despite the global pandemic that has disrupted business across industries, our teams continue to work tirelessly, to ensure on-time deliveries to Metro Corporations who are working on upgrading urban mobility in various cities. We are manufacturing trainsets that incorporate the highest safety features along with enhanced passenger experience. Our commitment continues towards Make-in-India, and localization is over 75% for all domestic projects.”

Alstom’s footprint in India is spread across various states - focused on developing Engineering solutions at the Innovation Center in Bangalore, Electric Locomotives (eLoco) at the Madhepura unit, Rail Components in Coimbatore and eLoco Car Body Shell production in Kolkata.
