L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (L&TMRHL) announced that 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 Hitech City Station to Raidurg section.
The traction system is fed from the 132kV/25kV Receiving Substation (RSS) of the Hyderabad Metro Rail at Yousufguda. 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 in this section will facilitate testing of reversal operation (upline to downline and vice versa) beyond Hitech city station. Further, completion of these trails beyond Hitech City station is crucial to improve the frequency of metro trains between Ameerpet and Hitech City and also to ease the peak hours rush in this section.”
Mr. KVB Reddy, MD & CEO, L&TMRHL stated, “This is an important milestone for Corridor III. We are thankful to Mr. DVS Raju for inspecting the OETS between Hitech City Station to Raidurg section.”
