Badarpur-Fbd corridor to employ green tech

DMRC for the first time will employ a green electrical receiving sub-station (RSS) for this extended Violet Line, which has been constructed at Sector 46 in Faridabad. It (RSS) will cater to the fully 14-km-long elevated corridor, and the nine stations between Badarpur and Escorts Mujesar.

“Solar power panels with a capacity of 50 KWp (kilowatt-peak) have been installed in it. The power generated will cater to the requirements of the RSS building and the remaining power will be used for the stations electrical load,” DMRC said in a statement.

Water from the sewage treatment plant would be reused for horticulture and sanitary purposes, the official said, adding, water meters have also been installed to monitor consumption of water.

All the indoor and outdoor lighting has been done with LEDs to ensure minimal power consumption.
CO2 sensors have also been installed at the control room to maintain good quality air.

“Provision for rain water harvesting has been done inside the sub-station premises for the optimal utilisation of rain water”. Besides, low CFC refrigerant and Inverter Compressor type VRV air conditioning system, which is more environment friendly and consumes less energy, has been installed inside the premises. At present, the metro network is served by a total of 12 receiving sub-stations spread across NCR.
