DMRC building highest automatic washing plant in Asia

New Delhi, Apr 25 (PTI) It’s being built on a ramp at a height of 6.7 meters from the ground level and can clean two metro trains in a span of just 5 minutes.

The Automatic Train Washing Plant, which DMRC claims the highest in Asia, is coming up at the Sultanpur depot on the under-construction Central Secretariat-Gurgaon Metro corridor.

The plant will wash the external body of the metro trains and side walls of the cars with the help of vertical brushes and takes about 4 to 5 minutes for complete washing of two four-car metro trains.

The trains are usually washed during the night after the metro services come to a close at 11 PM and maintained at the depots.
