Trainset Production for Bengaluru Metro's Yellow Line has Begun by Titagarh Rail Systems Limited

News Desk, News Nation 360 : As part of an agreement with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), Titagarh Rail Systems Limited (TRSL), a well-known Indian rolling stock manufacturer, has started producing trainsets for the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) Phase 2 Yellow Line project. In Titagarh's continuing contributions to India's urban transport network, this represents a major turning point. Titagarh's leadership in the rail transport sector is furthered by its remarkable range of manufacturing capabilities, which enable it to meet a broad range of transport needs. The company's success and its contribution to the national infrastructure are largely due to its continuous investments in cutting-edge production technologies and its dedication to quality and innovation. The December 2019 contract between BMRCL and CRRC Nanjing Puzhen Co Ltd ran into issues, causing delays in fulfilling the initial deadlines. To rectify these rolling stock supply delays, CRRC requested more time, and they later signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Titagarh Rail Systems. According to this memorandum of understanding, Titagarh will produce the trainsets at its cutting-edge plant. Thirty-six trainsets are to be built by Titagarh Rail Systems for the Yellow Line metro project in Bangalore. To fulfil project requirements, the company set up a unique production line for stainless steel. Production started in May 2024, with the first trainset expected to be delivered in August 2024. This crucial metro corridor, which stretches 21 kilometres from RV Road to Bommasandra, will enhance Bengaluru's connectivity and traffic flow. Titagarh's involvement in this project is evidence of its dedication to providing dependable transport options to assist India's infrastructure development.
