Alstom India, along with Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), has revealed the life-sized mock-up of the Mumbai Metro Line 3 (Aqua Line) trainset.

The mock-up showcases the design of the trainset and its features.

In August, the Government of Maharashtra unveiled the design of Alstom trains.

The model of the trains, which will operate on the underground line, was unveiled by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Alstom India and South Asia MD Alain Spohr said: “Our objective was to create an appropriate, future-proofed design that is relevant to the people, the city and their expectations. This theme is called ‘Dynamic Fluidism’.

“All technical and manufacturing parameters have been met in respect to the high interior density layout and space efficiency. We are proud to present this ‘New Face of Mumbai Transportation’.”

Alstom said that the exterior of the train emulates the city’s energy- the city that never sleeps while the colours of interior, beige and artic green, are dedicated to the people of Mumbai.

The 177.2m trainset can accommodate 3,000 passengers in one trip and is installed with a regenerative braking system to reduce carbon emissions.

Additionally, the trains will be built with advanced air suspension for comfortable journeys and CCTV surveillance, as well as fire and smoke detectors to ensure passenger safety.

Sphor added: “Alstom is committed to support MMRC in easing the transportation challenges of Mumbai. With the project stipulating more than 80% localised manufacturing, this contract further reinforces Alstom’s commitment to invest, grow and Make in India.”

The under-construction Mumbai Metro Line 3 is 33.5km-long underground corridor that connects Colaba, Bandra and SEEPZ.

Once complete, the line will feature 27 stations, of which 26 will be underground. It is expected to become operational in 2021.
