Hingna Metro Depot ready for May end

Nagpur: The Hingna car depot at MahaMetro, where coaches used in Reach III (Sitabuldi to Lokmanya Nagar stretch) are parked at night, is expected to be ready by May end. Currently, it is half complete, and the trains are available for parking.

A spokesperson for MahaMetro said the depot has an area of 65 acres of which 30.19 acres are used for the maintenance of rolling stocks. The depot consists of twelve components: time and safety office (TSO), auto coach washing plant (ACWP), traction substation (TSS), auxiliary substation (ASS), underground tank pump house, maintenance building, pit wheel lathe (PWL), engineering train unit (ETU), internal cleaning platform (ICP), unloading platform, stabilizing lines and biodigester.

The TSO is for the use of security purposes since the depot is limited to ordinary citizens. It’s all in. The ACWP is for the wash plant bed equipment, where the train is washed from outside. It is through too. The TSS moves MSEDCL’s supply of 33 KV down to 25 KV. It’s ready but the ASS is under construction, which goes down 33 KV to low tension (LT) level.
The UG tank pump room is used to supply water to various buildings inside the depot. Work is underway. Also being under construction is the maintenance building.

The PWL under construction will have a wheel-orientation machine where regular intervals are checked for the wheel profile. The ETU is complete and will be used to store the equipment for the rerailing of track machines.

The ICP will be used to disinfect rolling stock’s inside and underfloor. This building is currently being used for rolling stock maintenance as the maintenance building is under construction. The unloading platform on which the new train is discharged is complete with the help of the unloading equipment.

Research is continuing on the stable lines where rolling stock is stable. Research on the biodigester has not, however, begun.
