Blue Star Limited has won an air-conditioning and tunnel-ventilation system order valued at Rs 253 crore from Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL). The scope of this order includes design, engineering, supply, installation, and commissioning of the air-conditioning, tunnel-ventilation, and environmental-control system for nine underground stations and associated tunnels on Line 3 corridor of the Mumbai Metro between Mumbai Central and Bandra.
This turnkey project will require approximately 8200TR of water-cooled screw and magnetic bearing chillers, chilled water and condenser water pumps, air handling units, fan coil units, piping, ducting, insulation, tunnel ventilation fans, dampers, compressed-air system, associated electrical work, and a SCADA system, amongst others.
On account of space constraints in Mumbai, the size of each station box is smaller compared to metro rail systems in other parts of India, due to which the system design, sizing, and placement of the equipment has to be managed. Blue Star with its engineering prowess, proven project management expertise, and impressive track record of on-time completion, is well poised to execute such complex projects.
