LTMRHL inspects receiving Sub Station for Auxiliary Substations and for Overhead Electric Traction System for Corridor-III

HYDERABAD: L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (LTMRHL) has intensified work on the Ameerpet-Hitec City route of the Hyderabad Metro after Chief Electrical Inspector (CEIG) for Hyderabad Metro Rail DVS Raju inspected the Yousufguda Receiving Sub Station and accorded sanction for energisation on Monday.

After the inspection, Raju said energisation of Yousufguda RSS would facilitate power supply for Auxiliary Substations and for Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) for Corridor III. Yousufguda RSS also feeds supply to TOD Malls of L&T Metro Rail, he added.

Yousufguda Metro RSS is the fourth and the last RSS that is being energised. This RSS will feed power supply mainly to Corridor III of Hyderabad Metro Rail Project. The other three Metro Receiving Sub Stations are located at Uppal, Miyapur and MGBS, which are already in service.

Yousufguda RSS is fed from the Erragadda 220/132 kV grid substation of TSTRANSCO and is controlled through a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) from the Operation Control Centre at the HMR’s Uppal Depot.

LTMRHL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer KVB Reddy said this was an important milestone in power supply arrangement for Metro Rail Systems.

This would help in commissioning auxiliary substations at Metro Stations, Signalling and Telecommunication System, Automatic Fare Collection System in Ameerpet-Hitec City stretch as per schedule, he added.
