Blue Star secures order from Mumbai Metro Rail in India

Air-conditioning and refrigeration manufacturer Blue Star has secured an order worth $36.6m from India-based Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL).

Air-conditioning and refrigeration manufacturer Blue Star has secured an order worth $36.6m from India-based Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL).

The order will see Blue Star design, engineer, supply, install and commission an air conditioning, tunnel ventilation and environmental control system.

The system will be deployed at nine underground stations and related tunnels on Mumbai Metro’s Line 3 corridor, which runs between Mumbai Central and Bandra.

In order to implement the project, Blue Star will require water-cooled screw and magnetic bearing chillers, chilled water and condenser water pumps, as well as air handling units.

Additional requirements include fan coil units, ducting, tunnel ventilation fans, and a compressed air system. The company will also perform related electrical work and deploy a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.

With space constraints remaining a challenge in Mumbai, the company is required to design, size and place the system within the limited space that is available.

Blue Star vice-chairman and managing director Vir S Advani said: “This order is yet another milestone in the history of the company and we are proud to be associated with Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation.

“Blue Star’s superior and advanced project management capabilities have helped the company bag many such orders in the past and as the market grows, it is well-positioned to win many more in the coming years. I am particularly happy that through this order we would be playing an important role in the sustainable development and modernisation of Mumbai.”

Mumbai Metro Rail is a joint venture between the Government of India and Maharashtra state government.
