Scomi Consortium Shortlisted for Project

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

From The Star Publication;

"PENANG: The consortium comprising Scomi Engineering Bhd and Larsen & Toubro Ltd is one of the three shortlisted for the RM5bil monorail project in Mumbai, India.

The two others are Bombardier-Transportation India and Reliance Energy-Hitachi.

In a letter dated March 17, the Scomi-Larsen consortium was informed that it would receive a request for a proposal document soon.

Sources said the consortium would submit a proposal complete with financial and technical details to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority by mid-May.

The Scomi-Larsen consortium was among seven international consortia that submitted pre-qualification bids, which closed on Jan 25, for the Mumbai project.

The others were Reliance Engineering-Siemens, Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd-JMC-Intimin, Gammon India-Metrail Swiss and Videocon-Aerospace.

The 70km monorail project, stretching over four corridors in the city and suburbs, would be implemented on a build, operate and transfer basis for at least 30 years.

The estimated cost of building one kilometre of monorail track is RM85mil.

The monorail system, which is designed to accommodate some 10,000 passengers per hour during peak traffic, is expected to complement the existing railways in easing traffic congestion in the city, which is home to about 15 million people."
