- Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) Inspected and Approved for Energisation
L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (LTMRHL) is happy to announce Mr. DVS Raju, Chief Electrical Inspector (CEIG), Government of India, for Hyderabad Metro Rail, conducted the statutory inspection of Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) between Begumpet to SR Nagar throughAmeerpet Metro stations and accorded sanction for Energisation of OETS.
The traction system is fed from the 132Kv/25Kv Receiving Substation (RSS) of the Hyderabad Metro Rail at Uppal depot. Incoming supply to this RSS is drawn from 220Kv/132Kv main substation of TS TRANSCO.
Mr. DVS Raju after conducting the inspection said, “Energisation of the OETS will facilitate movement of trains for trial runs from Mettuguda to SR Nagar (stage 3) via interchange station at Ameerpet and there by connecting the entire stretch for commissioning i.e., from Nagole to Miyapur. This will also enable testing of other systems of the metro rail.”
This has enabledus to operate trains from Nagole to Ameerpet to SR Nagar and Ameerpet to Miyapur with interchange station at Ameerpet.
Ameerpet station has got 33Kv power supply sanction from EIG on 28th October 2017, thereby enabling illumination and functioning of lifts and escalators at Ameerpet Interchange Station.
“We are moving ahead as per our commitment to complete all statutory requirements by 20th November 2017, making the system ready for commissioning and inauguration. These are all important mileposts for the project. I appreciate the entire engineering team for working tirelessly in making this a reality. These tests will conclude with CMRS inspection.” Mr. Shivanand Nimbargi, MD & CEO, LTMRHL.
Mr. DVS Raju was accompanied by Mr. Shivanand Nimbargi, Mr. Anil Kumar Saini, Head, Railway Systems, LTMRHL and officials from Louie Berger (IE) and HMRL.
