Elec­tri­fi­ca­tion prob­lem hits Noida Metro line

The Political and Business Daily - - METRO/NCR -

DELHI Metro train ser­vices on the Blue line to Noida were dis­rupted to­day for nearly three hours to­day due to over­head elec­tri­fi­ca­tion prob­lem.

There was a prob­lem in an insulator on the over­head elec­tri­fi­ca­tion be­tween Shadipur and Pa­tel Na­gar on the down line en route Noida city cen­tre, a DMRC of­fi­cial said.

"The prob­lem was de­tected at 1:11 PM and was rec­ti­fied by 3.12 PM. Due to the tech­ni­cal fault, ser­vices had to be run on sin­gle line be­tween Kirti Na­gar and Pa­tel Na­gar in the af­fected pe­riod re­sult­ing in de­layed run­ning of trains on the en­tire cor­ri­dor by eight to ten min­utes," he said.

In ur­ban Mass Rapid Metro op­er­a­tions, over­head elec­tric sup­ply poles are lo­cated at a dis­tance of 40 me­tres with two in­su­la­tors on each OHE mast. The Metro elec­tri­cal engi­neers had to lo­cate the faulty insulator amongst 200 such in­su­la­tors, the of­fi­cial said, adding that once it was lo­cated, the insulator was re­placed within 12 min­utes.

"Three re­pair teams were rushed to the spot from Ya­muna Bank, Mundka and Na­jaf­garh de­pots. Dur­ing the en­tire pe­riod, cen­tralised and lo­cal an­nounce­ments were also made at all the sta­tions and trains," he said.
