Voltas on The Winning Track
EM&R business wins coveted design-and-build HVAC bid for Chennai's Metro Rail.
Metro rail is the emerging growth segment in urban infrastructure, as more and more cities struggle to cope with the demands of mounting road congestion. It's a growth path for Voltas' EM&R (Electro-Mechanical & Refrigeration) business too, on which it's now leaped ahead with a winning bid for Phase 1 of the Chennai Metro Rail Project. Won against formidable competition, the order marks Voltas’ first successful qualification in Environmental Control Systems for underground Metro Rail stations. The scope of work covers design-and-build HVAC for 19 underground stations, including one crossover station, spanning a 24 km distance.
