The scope of the contract includes unmanned train operation (UTO), computer-based interlocking and centralised train supervision, platform screen doors, and the electrical and mechanical supervisory control and data acquisition system (E&M Scada).

Alstom says Urbalis 400 is designed for heavy-ridership metros and offers a considerable range of functions that improve headways and average speed performance.

Alstom has already deployed Urbalis on the Kochi and Lucknow metros. Earlier this year, the company was awarded two contracts for electrification and rolling stock for Line 3.
