Hyderabad: A week-long Metro Technology Training Course for capacity and skill building for young engineers at the Uppal metro depot here was inaugurated by HMR Metro Rail Managing Director NVS Reddy on Monday.

In response to popular demand from different upcoming metros in the country and various technical consultancy firms, L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Ltd has launched the technology training programme and this is the first batch.

In his inaugural address to the participants belonging to different engineering disciplines in organisations like Nagpur Metro, AECOM, Parsons, and L&T HMR, Reddy highlighted the unique features and advanced technologies of the Hyderabad metro rail project.

Explaining the dilemmas faced by the Hyderabad Metro in choosing between different technology options, he emphasised the need to absorb the latest technologies and avoid the marketing traps of some of the multinational firms which try to hawk outdated technologies to Indian metros.

He elaborated as to how, with the engineering talent of L&T and the guidance of some highly respected metro rail experts of the country, the Hyderabad project is able to substantially reduce the role of foreign consultants and yet adopt very sophisticated metro rail technologies. He cited the choice of precast segmental construction of metro viaduct, the unique design of Hyderabad metro stations, adoption of communication-based train control (CBTC) system which is a first in the country and the latest automatic fare collection (AFC) system as examples of the technological sophistication of the Hyderabad metro rail project.

Explaining the expanding market for metro rail engineers, Reddy advised young engineers and managers to master latest technologies and be aligned to the needs of the people to deliver world-class transportation services in Indian cities.

Enlightening them as to how India lost its prime position over a period of time, he exhorted them to be innovative and reposition India as a technology leader in the modern world.
