|In the next five years, Indian railway market will be the 3rd largest, accounting to 10% of the global market and Metro rail is going to be 70% of the railway market in India. Many international companies are keen to tap the opportunity.
In India, due to increasing population and economic expansion, the electricity demand and supply balance is skewed. To tackle the situation we need to develop eco-friendly cities with more public transports. This need leads to the expansion of Metro rail network.
These companies have done R&D in railway technology since many years and have worked to improve every requirement of railway transportation, such as environment adaptation, safety, punctuality, comfort and reliability. The companies can contribute in reducing electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emission by introducing its excellent energy-saving technology as well as solution know-how for railway systems, which will lead to improving the city environment. Some international company from Japan has recently been assigned the contract of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system for 486 cars for Delhi Metro RS10 project. DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.) attaches much importance to the reduction of life-cycle cost incurred by train operation and maintenance; that is why Japanese inverter-based HVAC system with high-efficiency and maintainability has received a good evaluation.
Japanese, in its commitment for future progress, has consistently achieved technological breakthroughs on the railway systems that shape the future - the freight rail, rolling stock systems, power supply systems and information systems.
