Cochin Shipyard

Cochin Shipyard Ltd. is building the fleet to strengthen Kochi Metro Rail Ltd.’s (KMRL) infrastructure and its connectivity to islands around Kochi / Ernakulam. The combination of the electric propulsion drive train, energy storage, and automation systems will significantly reduce fuel consumption, increase manoeuvrability, and provide reliable, uninterrupted power supply while ensuring safe, cost-effective operation of the vessels.

“The project showcases our commitment towards decarbonisation and environment sustainability” said Thorbjoern Fors, Executive Vice President for Siemens Energy Industrial Applications. “Furthermore, the low emission footprint of the vessels makes it an ideal benchmark for other customers looking to use inland waterways to transport goods and passengers.”
