RAILWAY ELECTRIFICATION

  • Indian Railways (IR) has made 100 per cent electrification a key priority with the aim of saving costs and reducing its carbon footprint. Around 39,866 route km (rkm), or 62.65 per cent, of rail lines have been commissioned on electric traction as of April 1, 2020.
  • In 2019-20, IR achieved the highest electrification of 5,782 rkm, a growth of about 9 per cent over the previous year. However, the lockdown following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic significantly slowed down electrification works during the first half of financial year 2020-21 and the challenges are expected to continue for the next six months as well.
  • Nevertheless, IR continues to maintain its target of electrifying around 23,765 rkm between 2020-21 and 2023-24 (till December 2023).
  • Innovative energy efficient solutions and techniques are being deployed to reduce traction and non-traction bills. IR is procuring cheaper power, adopting energy efficiency practices, stepping up its renewable energy capacity and engaging in power trade to optimise its energy generation and utilisation.
  • In a bid to become a net-zero carbon emitter by 2030, IR is slowly expanding its use of renewable energy in its operations and plans to meet 10 per cent of its energy demand from renewables. Of the total wind energy target of 200 MW, it has installed 36.5 MW. Besides, 960 railways stations have solar installations in place to meet their power requirements.
  • IR has also increased the production of electric locomotives. It has not only discontinued diesel locomotive production, but also plans to convert most of the existing diesel locomotives into electric ones. It has set a target to produce 725 electric locomotives in the next two financial years 2020- 21 and 2021-22. Further, it is producing modern electric locomotives with three-phase technology and regeneration capability.
  • Going forward, IR’s electricity requirements will continue to grow as it pursues greater electrification. The deployment of mechanised technologies is expected to increase in the coming years. IR’s growing energy requirements and future plans present significant opportunities for power producers, renewable energy developers, technology providers, and manufacturers of rolling stock and electrical equipment.
  • The mission of this virtual conference is to discuss the electrification plans and targets, examine the new opportunities, highlight the experience of contractors and identify the unresolved challenges. The conference will focus

CONSTRUCTION IN RAILWAYS

  • Construction activity in the railways sector has picked up pace in the past few years on account of increased focus on network expansion and decongestion.
  • In the past five years (from 2015-16 to 2019-20), the average pace of commissioning of new lines, doubling, and third and fourth line projects stood at 7.3 km per day. In 2019-20, 2,226 km of new line, doubling and gauge conversion works were completed. The year also recorded the highest ever expenditure in the history of Indian Railways of Rs 398.36 billion on track construction projects.
  • However, the construction activity was rather muted in the first quarter of financial year 2020-21 due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The construction and implementation of ongoing projects, in particular, was badly affected due to restrictions on labour and equipment mobilisation.
  • Project execution has improved since June 2020. Construction work on mega projects such as DFC, high speed rail (HSR) and regional rapid transit system (RRTS) was resumed during the lockdown itself. During the first five months of financial year 2020-21 (April-August 2020), about 507 km of new lines, doubling, and third and fourth line projects were completed. IR has almost reached normalcy in operations now, and is hopeful of achieving its target of 3,750 km for the current fiscal year.
  • On the technology front, there have been some encouraging developments. In recent years, new and advanced design, engineering and construction techniques are being deployed to save costs and expedite construction and commissioning. In addition, aerial patrolling solutions such as drones, LiDAR and GIS mapping are being adopted to improve surveying and monitoring.
  • In the next four to five years, the railways sector is gearing up for a quantum jump in infrastructure development. Massive network expansion and decongestion targets have been set. IR plans to undertake over 18,000 km of new line, 11,500 km of doubling, 2,500 km of multi-tracking and 2,252 km of gauge conversion works. New corridors and lines will be constructed under the DFC, HSR, RRTS and suburban rail systems. These network expansion and decongestion targets would require at least Rs 5.2 trillion worth of investments.
  • With this magnitude of required investments, there would be a significant opportunity for construction contractors, technology providers, design and engineering consultants, and equipment and material suppliers.
  • The mission of this one-day virtual conference is to discuss the network expansion and decongestion plans and targets, examine the upcoming construction opportunities, highlight the experience of contractors, assess the short- to medium-term impact of Covid-19 on project implementation, and identify the unresolved challenges. The conference will provide a platform for showcasing the latest technologies, design and engineering practices, and innovations in equipment and materials.
