With supply of HVAC offering designed to meet highest level of safety, reliability and energy efficiency requirements, ABB solutions has become the part of the fourth largest metro system in India.

The company has supplied ACH580 and ACS880 active front end drives to support Chennai metro line’s ventilation system and platform cooling.

Commenting on the development, Sanjeev Arora, President, Motion Business, ABB India Ltd, said “this is yet another significant milestone for ABB in contributing to India’s booming infrastructure and we are proud to be associated with yet another metro rail project in India.”

“Spotlight on ‘Make in India’ initiative is back in the wake of a pandemic that disrupted supply chains. With reforms being charted out for various sectors for improving ease of doing business, we are aligned towards making India a strong and self-reliant nation. Leveraging our strong local manufacturing footprint, we are able to provide customized solutions for these key infrastructure projects,” he added.

The company said that its drives have been used together with electric motors for the effective control of tunnel ventilation fans. They are integral in the operation of advanced air exchange systems in the stations and tunnels, ensuring passengers’ comfort and saving energy in normal operation.

Further, these drives also address the voltage-drop issues caused by long cables in the tunnel network and resulted in cost benefits to the project.

To provide its HVAC solutions for the Chennai metro project, ABB India has partnered with Sterling Wilson, one of the leading EPC companies. The two companies partnered on several critical infrastructure projects in India.

Significantly, about 50 per cent of Indian metro lines run on ABB technologies like medium voltage Uni-gear, LV ArTuK and gas insulated switchgears. Current operational metro lines in Kochi and Bengaluru use the support of ABB solutions to transport millions of passengers safely every day.
