Indian Railways Deploys New Tech Offering 4 Lakh More Seats Daily

From October 2019, the Indian Railway will deploy a new eco-friendly technology which is said to create more seats for passengers.

From October 2019, the Indian Railways will deploy a new technology which is said to bring passengers great relief. Instead of using power from power cars, the new technology will draw power from engines to supply electricity for air-conditioning lightning. With this new technology, more than four lakh of seats would be available from October.

Currently, the electricity supplied to the coaches is produced by a diesel generator called End on Generation (EOG). The generator is placed in one or two power cars located at the back of every train in LHB Rake. The new technology, Head on Generation, is already used widely around the world. The train receives power from the overhead power lines. Officials stated that over 5,000 Indian Railways coaches will use HOG by October 2019.

With this new technology, more than four lakh of seats would be available from October.

An AC coach needs 65 to 70 liters of diesel every hour while a non-AC coach needs 40 liters. One liter of diesel generates 3 units of electricity, which means that for every hour, a non-AC-coach will utilize around 120 units of electricity. Head on Generation is an eco-friendly technology. According to officials, it will produce no noise or air pollution. It can reduce the amount of yearly carbon emissions per train remarkably by up to 700MT.

This is a great move from the Indian Railways. Not only this new technology can create more seats for passengers, but it is also a more environmentally friendly option. With Rs 6,000 crore saved as a result of adopting this technology, a lot can be done.
