DB E&C continues on its path of growth
DB E&C expertise is in demand worldwide

DB E&C is therefore now providing all-inclusive planning services for both plan approval sections, including plan reviews, acceptance tests and construction supervision.

- In January, DB E&C signed a consultancy agreement for Metro Mumbai Line 4 in Mumbai/India. The 32.5 km line, with 32 stations, is planned to carry some 335,000 passengers every day in 2031. As general consultant, DB E&C is managing a consortium with Louis Berger and Hill International. After Bhopal and Indore, this is now the third major metro project that DBE&C has acquired in India in just a few months.
- Together with Yenon, DB E&C won the tender for planning and supervising the construction of the 28 km local Purple Line in Tel Aviv/Israel.
