Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Rohit Malviya told that technically the work of armor is a very challenging task, this work was completed by working continuously for twenty-four hours day and night. In Pigaura-Kaladevi section, 4 towers of 40 m height each weighing about 8500 kg were constructed for running train at 160 kmph speed, which is being done for the first time in this railway.
20 km of optical fiber cable was laid, radio frequency tags were installed in the entire section and armor equipment was required to be installed. Mr. Malviya said that Kavach (Indian Railway Automatic Train Protection System) is the state-of-the-art train protection system completely developed in India, which is currently available only in selected developed countries. Kavach provides an important reliable protective layer over the existing rail operation system.
After its implementation, accidents due to safety lapse caused by ignoring signals due to human error by train drivers will get rid of forever. With this technology, the driver can see the position of the signal up to 4 to 5 km inside the engine itself, which is very useful during the fog and the punctuality of the trains will not be affected, which is now running at Nagda in Kota division on the Mumbai-Delhi route. – It is being planted in the middle of Mathura block.
This work has been successfully completed under the leadership and guidance of Kota GSU Unit’s Sachin Shukla, Chief Signal & Telecom Engineer and Rahul Jareda, Deputy Chief Signal & Telecom Engineer.
