Surbana Jurong Secures First Smart City Project in India

Surbana Jurong has secured the Orange Smart City project in India. We will be providing a comprehensive Smart City design solution for the client via the Vision Master Plan (pre-concept) and a Go-to-Market Strategy. Orange Smart City is a revolutionary Greenfield (city created from scratch) smart industrial development in close proximity to India’s financial capital, Mumbai. It is envisaged to be a city of the future that offers the best of business, living, learning, recreation, health and smart solutions.

This is a first of its kind project in India. A Greenfield Smart City project that incorporates three of the big ticket programs in the national development agenda – “Smart Cities”, “Make in India”, “Housing for All”, and also linked to the fourth – a major infrastructure program called the “Sagarmala scheme” (for port development). We will be providing them a vision that encompasses smart grid power, renewable energy, water, waste management, and smart mobility as part of the comprehensive urban solutions. The project is also seen as the Economic Access Corridor to the Client owned and operated Karanja port.

This project is envisioned to be spread over 1,000 acres across 4 distinct sites and is linked to the Karanja Port, the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (India’s largest cargo handling port) and the proposed Navi Mumbai Aerospace Park (India’s largest air freight terminal) with a dedicated elevated road link, making sure that the project gets the best connectivity to the rest of the world. Downstream opportunities include development of the concept, the detailed Masterplan, followed by Phase 0 and Phase 1 buildings, and infrastructure.
