Check out Metro Rail Today June 2021

Dear Readers,

Serving over 8 billion passengers annually, the Indian railroad network is one of the largest and most intricate in the world. But moving billions of people over tens of thousands of kilometers of rail every year is no small feat – it requires enormous amounts of energy, even though passenger-mile emissions are much lower than vehicle traffic.

India’s transport sector contributes to 12% of the country’s GHG emissions,  with railways accounting for about 4 percent of that. To reduce overall emissions from transportation, India committed to increase the amount of freight moved by Indian Railways from about 35 percent in 2015 to 45 percent by 2030.

In this edition, we have featured the developments of high-speed railways in Germany to mark the 30th Anniversary of ICE High-Speed Trains. Alain Spohr, Managing Director of Alstom Transport (India & South Asia) has discussed the future of hydrogen fuel cell-powered trains and their impact on climate change. Under technology talk, experts also discussed on use of 5G technology in Rail Transport, and the future of Magrail technology. Special coverage has been also given on infrastructure financing.

We have covered the interviews of Mr. Ashok Menghani, Business Leader, Schneider Electric Singapore; Mr. Steve Jones, Sales Director, MIDEL, Singapore and Ms.Ling Fang, President, Alstom Transport Asia Pacific. These leaders have shared their experiences and success stories in their respective fields.
