This substation is a part of the Tehran Metro Line 6 project, which commenced in early 2017 with the involvement of MAPNA Group, SABIR International Co., and Shahr Bank. Three phases of the project have already been implemented, and the northern phase of the route is scheduled to open in early October of this year.
The construction of the substation in the Kianshahr region, which is part of the southern segment of the line, took approximately one year. This allowed for the connection of the southern part to the regional electricity network of Tehran.
The Tehran Metro Line 6 project includes design, engineering, procurement of main equipment and spare parts, transportation, installation, test and commissioning, preparation of engineering documents, and personnel training for operation.
It also includes power supply equipment, control and signal systems, facilities, telecommunication infrastructure, rail lines, escalators, elevators, inter-tunnel air conditioners and ventilators, entrance gates, and the SCADA system.
Once fully operational, Tehran Metro Line 6 will give the capital’s subway system the longest route in Iran. The line will stretch over 31 kilometers with 27 stations, starting from Sulqan in the northwest and ending in Dolat-Abad district in the southeast. In further stages, Line 6 will expand to Shah Abdol-Azim Shrine in the ancient district of Rey to the south of the city, becoming the longest subway route in the Middle East with 36 kilometers of length.
It is worth mentioning that Mapna Group’s active involvement in the Tehran and Isfahan metro projects, as well as their satisfactory performance in the maintenance and repairs of Tehran Metro Line 3, has led to their assignment of the maintenance and repair tasks for the electrical and mechanical equipment of Tehran Metro Line 6.
