Indra wins two contracts with total value of 11.9 million euros
Indra will deploy its smart technology in the longest tunnel in Southeast Asia, between Chenani and Nashri, and in the Navi Mumbai metro system, in India's financial capital, both currently under construction.
The contract to implement the integrated management system in the Chenani tunnel is worth 6.5 million euros and the term of execution is 12 months. Indra is responsible for the design, supply, set-up and rollout of the control system for the tunnel, which at 9.2 km is the longest in Southeast Asia.
Indra will equip the control center with its proprietary Horus solution, permitting the centralized integrated management of the various intelligent traffic systems (ITS) that will be deployed in the tunnel and guaranteeing compliance with the highest quality and security standards.
The project includes implementation of the automatic incident detection, video surveillance, traffic control, signaling, fire detection, access control and emergency call systems, and also integrate other sub-systems supplied by local companies, such as the lighting, ventilation, communication and energy systems.
Indra's technology will make it possible to monitor the status of the tunnel at all times and obtain real-time information for decision-making purposes, an aspect of vital importance in such a large-scale infrastructure.
The high level of automation of operations will facilitate speedy and accurate management of everything that happens in the tunnel, both for routine management purposes and in emergency situations.
Indra's solution will also make it possible to offer real-time information to drivers and deliver optimal safety and service quality, which will help to reduce the risk of incidents and optimize the use of resources in those situations.
This project for the longest tunnel in India and Southeast Asia represents concrete recognition of Indra's leadership in providing solutions for such complex projects, and also provides the company with a unique reference in Asia.
Indra is currently implementing its Horus technology to monitor the 12 road tunnels in London, the Bogotá-Villavicencio highway in Colombia and the Bouira tunnel in Algeria, and it has also carried out major projects in Ireland, China, Mexico, Chile, Montenegro, Portugal and Morocco.
The contract to design, make, engineer, supply and implement the access control and ticketing systems for the new metro line currently under construction in the southeast sector of the city of Mumbai is worth 5.4 million euros.
Indra will implement a latest-generation contactless ticketing system to enhance the service and information provided to the more than 18 million residents of Mumbai, simultaneously facilitating the control, financial management and tracking of resources.
Passengers will be able to top up their contactless cards or buy the electronic tokens at any of the 11 stations along the line, either using the automatic dispensing machines or at the customer service/ticket offices that each station will have.
The access control systems will allow users to validate their cards by simply passing them over the scanner, leading to faster and more convenient access.
The solution supplied by Indra will also include portable top-up and inspection devices to allow these processes to be carried out directly on trains and platforms. ■
