Metro rail has one of the lowest carbon emission rates among mass transport systems. The need to cut congestion on roads, reduce journey times and provide meaningful sustainable solutions has seen a focus on moving people, not vehicles. Access to mass public transport is key to improving city livability throughout the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

Linxon is supplying design, manufacturing, supply, installation, testing and training, as well as commissioning of the power supply system for Phase 2 Corridor 3 (from Sholinganallur to Sipcot 2) & corridor 5 (from CMBT to Sholinganallur).

The project scope includes traction substations and auxiliary main substations, along with wayside substations and power cables, overhead catenary systems and a supervisory control and data acquisition system.

This contract is part of Phase 2, which will significantly increase ridership and reduce congestion, particularly around Chennai’s expanding IT hub.
