Kolkata Metro gets wheels from SAIL’S Durgapur plant
sAIL’S Durgapur steel plant has dispatched the first consignment of coach wheels to Kolkata Metro. earlier, the wheels for Kolkata metro rail were being imported. sail said that it is an important step towards import substitution and in the true spirit of “making in india”, sail envisages developing new products to suit the country’s needs. The plant has built the carriage wheels on its own. The design of the Kolkata metro wheel is critical due to its complex web profile, which is different from the existing products that are supplied by DSP.
