Automatic Coach Washing Plant Commissioned At Secunderabad Station






- Installed at Coaching Depot, Secunderabad

- Commissioned at a cost of Rs.2 crores, including maintenance for 5 years

As yet another step towards eco-friendly initiative and also to further improve the passenger experience, Secunderabad Division of South Central Railway has set up an Automatic Coach Washing plant at Coaching Depot, Secunderabad. The coach washing plant was inaugurated by Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR today i.e., 01st October, 2021. Shri A.K Gupta, Divisional Railway Manager, Secunderabad and other senior officials were also present o­n the occasion.

In addition to providing safe and reliable service, South Central Railway has always been at the forefront of taking measures to provide clean stations and trains to the travelling public. As an ecological measure towards the same, the automatic coach washing plant has been set up. This ensures better quality of exterior coach cleaning while at the same time reducing the use of water and electricity consumption.

The Automatic Coach Washing Plant is a multistage external cleaning system, which uses vertical rotating brushes as well as pressurized water and soap solution jets for cleaning of coach exterior. The automatic coach washing plant is able to achieve complete exterior cleaning of a rake i.e., 24 coaches in about 8-10 minutes time. The manpower requirement also scales down to just o­ne person per shift. Moreover, the fresh water consumption for automatic coach washing gets reduced by around 85% as compared to the normal manual washing method. While the manual system uses 9600 litres of fresh water, the Automatic Coach Cleaning requires just 1440 litres of fresh water and 5760 litres of recycled water per train. With around 168 coaches washed at the Coaching Depot, Secunderabad each day, the fresh water saved amounts to significant 20,848 kilo litres per year.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR stated that the setting up of the Automatic coach washing plant affirms the commitment of the zone towards the development and betterment of Rail services. He advised that environmental friendly initiatives should be taken up regularly to bring a positive change in the quality of Rail travel. He expressed that the coach washing plant will serve as role-model in cleanliness o­n Indian Railways.
