Dopplemayr Group and Poma Group — have shown their interest to set up a joint venture with Indian Port Rail Corporation Limited (IPRCL) to design and make ropeways.
Based out of Austria and France, respectively, Dopplemayr Group and Poma Group are leading players in ropeway category.
While IPRCL is a subsidiary of the Shipping Ministry and has been mandated by the government to deal with multi-modal transport systems across India including ropeways.
It may be recalled that IPRCL had earlier this year invited applications from companies with technical expertise and experience in running safe passengers ropeway systems in Asia and India to form a joint venture.
According to IPRCL, manufacturers should provide examples of safe and commercially viable ropeway operations, apart from possibilities of making the ropeway systems in India. It would then consider forming a joint venture where the stake of IPRCL can be mutually agreed upon.
