  EMU Maintenance

The EMU maintenance is done at 3 car sheds located at Mumbai Central,          Kandivali & Virar. POH of EMU rakes is done at Mahalaxmi workshop.        These sheds and workshops are accredited with various international certifications like ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO 50001:2011, ISO 3834-2, "5S" Practices & Green Co Rating.

Passenger Amenities Upgradation:

  •  Fully Air-conditioned EMU services: 12 Air Conditioned EMU services are    run daily.   

  • Introduction of Uttam EMU rake (5533-5534) into passenger service:       Uttam Rake (5533-5534) with Special features was inducted into     passenger service and was also widely appreciated in various news     media

  • Provision of Knurling of Centre Pole: Shed has taken initiative for the replacement of plain centre grab pole by knurled centre grab pole in all the rakes, to enhance passenger safety.      

  • Enhance signage on reserved and divyangjan compartments: Passenger friendly signages to locate the coaches by      passengers, with large size signage boards having better visibility      have been implemented

                                                                                                    

Energy Conservation Measures

  •   Operation of 3-phase EMU rakes:           

107 3-phase EMU rakes are in passenger service. These rakes are energy efficient due to the provision of regenerative braking which results in energy saving of the order of 30% of energy consumed which was about ₹.77.52Cr during the year 2019-20.

  •  Provision of LED lights in place of fluorescent tube lights in EMU rakes:          

As an Energy Conservation measure, LED lights are provided in place of Fluorescent tube lights in all EMU & MEMU coaches. This has resulted in savings of about ₹. 81.3 lakhs /annum by EMUs.

Development Roadmap

        Train  Simulator: This has been installed at EMU carshed Virar, and has          been playing a vital role in enhancing the driving skills of Motorman for  

EMU rakes  which inturn will improve safety of trains.    

  •  Commissioning of Under slung AC Rakes: 12-car Under slung Air-conditioned EMU rake fitted with M/s Medha      Electrics, is undergoing trials on Western Railway. Following      successful trials, this state of the art first of its kind EMU rake      will be put on passenger service.

         
  • CCTV cameras in EMU rakes: CCTV cameras are installed in 47 EMU rakes to increase passenger      security inside the train. Further provision is being planned.

         
  • Emergency Talkback System: Total Talk back system is installed in 09 EMU rakes for communication with the Guard of the train during Emergency. This is also being extended to all rakes for enhancing security of passengers.

         
  •  Train services increase and 12 car to 15 car augmentation: At present, 1367 services are provided daily for passengers between Churchgate and Dahanu Section. This includes both 12 car and 15 car services. Few existing 12 car services between Andheri & Virar are planned to be augmented to 15 car services.

         
  • State of the art online rolling in inspection system: Installation of AI-based rolling-in inspection system at BCT rolling inspection point.

         
  • Digitization: Implementation of digitization programs such as E-Office, IMMS, IREPS in tenders, PCO and store sections. Efforts are being made to   achieve complete paperless working.

         
  • Automation of Rake Cleaning: One Automatic coach washing plant working at EMU Car shed Virar. More such automated washing plants have been planned at other sheds.
