Bhoomi Pujan of rail coach refurbishing factory held in Jhansi | Kanpur News


JHANSI: The Bhoomi Pujan ceremony of the land in Jhansi where the rail coach refurbishing factory has to come up, was held on Friday. The full-fledged construction work of Rs 450 crore mega project is set to start from November 20.
The factory, which is expected to be fully constructed by 2022, will churn out 250 refurbished coaches annually which will then be doubled to 500 coaches.
The project will be a source of mega employment generation, as per railway officials. The Bhoomi Pujan ceremony was attended by Jhansi DRM Sandeep Mathur, CWM Deepak Nigam and other railway officials. Spread across 74 acres of land, it was sanctioned in 2018, and its foundation stone was laid by PM Narendra Modi on February 15, 2019 during his visit to Jhansi.
Mathur informed that the construction work would be supervised by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited. “The factory will have an environment-friendly pre-engineering building shed of 65,000 square metres with a waste water recycling plant and a 500kw solar plant mounted on the roof,” said the DRM.
“Apart from this, the factory will also have state-of-the-art machinery and power plants including robotic arm paint booth, shot blasting plant, automation in coach assembling and disassembling line and remote controlled EOT cranes. As many as 160 staff quarters will also be part of the factory,” he added.
“It will prove to be a major asset for Indian Railways as well as for Jhansi in terms of standard maintenance of new generation LHB coaches,” said Mathur.
