Urban Transport: KEC Marks Its Presence

The KEC team has recently forayed into Urban Transport with orders of Delhi Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS), secured by its Railways team; and Kochi and Delhi Metro orders by its Civil team.

Vimal Kejriwal, Managing Director & CEO, KEC International commented, “We are delighted with the orders won in the RRTS and Metro sectors, which are in line with our strategy for expanding our Railway presence. These orders mark our entry into the urban transport sector and further expand our client portfolio. This foray will also help us in building a robust executable order book, thus enabling us to scale-up the business and achieve the desired growth plans.”

At a time where the global economy is undergoing tremendous pressure, these orders coming through have provided KEC with a rock-solid foundation for FY20.

KEC: A Notable Portfolio

Known for delivering complex projects across various terrains, ahead of schedule for clients, it has long proven to be an integrated player in the industry delivering landmark projects globally.

Over the years, the Company has expanded its portfolio from being a pure-play Power Transmission & Distribution EPC company to expand and strengthen its presence in various other businesses such as Railways, Civil, Solar, Smart Infrastructure, and Cables. In fact, a leader in overhead railway electrification, KEC boasts of having executed 40% of India’s railway electrification, which is a significant achievement. Today, the Company has expanded to execute various types of works for the Railways such as track laying, doubling and tripling of tracks, building railway stations, tunnels and bridges, signalling & telecommunication works, and electrification. In an industry mired in delays and pushing deadlines, KEC has set a never-had-been-done pattern of delivering projects ahead of scheduled time, which is unheard of in this sector. Having proven dexterity by delivering four railway electrification projects before deadline last year, it has now set a new benchmark for all the players in the market.

KEC’s Civil business, which was established to fill in medium-sized gaps in areas not dominated by large-sized players, is today one of the major players in the construction of factories for automobiles and cement manufacturers and continues to win repeat orders from major realty players in India. With the expansion into Urban Transport, KEC’s Civil business continues to thrive.

The Company’s integrated business functions have built a stronger enterprise that is continuously enabling growth in adjacencies. Constantly expanding with a focus on high efficiency and continued value delivery, it has a footprint in 100+ countries and is currently executing projects in 30+ countries.
