Noida: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will assist the Noida Rail Metro Corporation (NMRC) over the next one year in operating the Noida Greater Noida Metro rail service, which is expected to begin later this year, according to an agreement signed on Friday.

The NMRC entered into the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the DMRC for taking up the operation of the 30-km-long Aqua Line on “full-fledged” basis.

 

“Now the DMRC operations and maintenance staff comprising around 100 officers and supervisors would provide hand-holding support to the NMRC,” an official statement said.

The DMRC’s support would include training to the freshly recruited NMRC workforce over the next one year with a provision for future extension, it said.

The MoU was signed by DMRC executive director (operations) Vikas Kumar and his NMRC counterpart P.D. Upadhyay here in the presence of NMRC managing director Alok Tandon and DMRC director (operations) A.K. Garg, the release said.

NMRC officials said extensive trials were undergoing between the Depot station and the Sector 81 station (23 km) and are likely to be extended over the entire corridor (30 km) by next week.

 

“This would mark a significant mileage in the time-bound completion of Metro works since the signalling trials over such a long corridor has not been done earlier in such a short span of time,” the NMRC said.

The Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), the nodal agency nominated by the ministry of railways, has already conducted oscillation trials on a  stretch of 10 km (from Depot station to Sector 147) and the report is expected shortly.

Both the receiving substation (RSS) have now been commissioned and power can be made available from both the sources to the train operations and station requirements.

Auxiliary Substation (ASS) at all 21 stations have also been commissioned, the statement said.
