We are looking at expanding those once we have got a cookie cutter concept which you can replicate across the country," said Sunil Mathur Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Limited.Siemens Project Ventures GmbH (subsidiary of Siemens Financial Services) and TRIL Urban Transport (a Tata Group Company) have formed a joint venture under public private partnership route to develop the metro corridor from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar in Pune, Maharashtra.The joint venture has formed a special purpose company called Pune IT City Metro Rail Limited. The order size of Siemens Limited is to the extent of around Rs. 900 crore.The 23.3 kms corridor with 23 stations will be the first metro project in India under the New Metro Rail Policy."We're building that up (Pune-Hinjewadi project) and continue to gain the experience from project management and technologies and we will continue on the skill sets required," said Mathur, adding that once Siemens gets a concept for India, hopefully it can offer it for the global global use as well.Siemens registers 100 digital use cases on Siemens Xcelerator; on-boards four ecosystem partnersRead more at: (ICE MUMBAI)
