ABB bags Rs.506-cr order from Bangalore Metro

Leading power and automation technology group ABB Monday said it has won an order worth Rs.506 crore from Bangalore Metro Rail Corp to provide power solutions for the city's proposed metro network.

"ABB will design, supply, install and commission four substations that receive and distribute electricity," said the company in a statement.

Bangalore's population has grown at a rapid pace in the last decade owing to a flourishing IT industry resulting in the city's infrastructure coming under tremendous pressure.

The urban population is expected to rise to more than 8.5 million by 2011 from the current 7 million or so.
