“The PM recently inaugurated a 9-km long completed stretch of Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation’s (UPMRC) Kanpur Metro Project. JSL has supplied 2,000 tonnes of stainless steel for the project,” the company said in a statement.
The first train set was handed over to UPMRC by Alstom on September 18, 2021.
The scope of the metro project includes the design and development of 201 coaches. Each coach will require approximately 9-10 metric tonnes of stainless steel, supplied by Jindal Stainless, the steel firm said.
The company further said it has already supplied stainless steel to metro projects in Sydney and Queensland, apart from Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Chennai metro projects.
