NCR taking long strides towards 100% electrification

Unchdih to Meja power plant route of Prayagraj division electrified

Indian Railways is working at a fast pace with the goal of 100% electrification of its entire network. The North Central Railway, which being an important contituent of Indian Railways, provides vital connectivity to the Eastern, Western and Southern parts of the nation to the Northern part, is also making rapid strides for electrification of its sections. It may be noted that important trunk routes of North Central Railway are already electrified, and apart from these, the remaining sections o­n branch lines are also being electrified at a rapid pace.

order to achieve this target of 100% electrification, the 27 km long Unchdih to Meja Thermal Power Plant route connected to the highly congested Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay Jn – Ghaziabad section of Prayagraj Division of North Central Railway has been electrified. In this sequence, the placement of load in Meja Urja Nigam Power Limited siding with electric power was done o­n 07.06.2021. This rake was placed in the siding of Power Plant from Unchdih by Electric Power No.60003 SRE WAG 12. The train reached NTPC via viaduct and after being unloaded was received in the down loop line. It was flagged off from Unchdih station at 12:05 hrs o­n the newly electrified route and arrived at NTPC at 13:15 hrs.

It is to be noted that earlier, rake placement in Meja Urja Nigam Power Limited siding was done with diesel power o­nly, which would improve wagon turnaround. This electrification work will not o­nly ensure smooth and faster movement of coal traffic o­n the routeand will also address the problem of traction changing alongwith saving time and energy. This work will increase operational efficiency, line capacity and improve average speed of trains. Electrification of rail routes will reduce the use of imported petroleum fuels and will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
