Kolkata/IBNS: Danfoss Industries Pvt Ltd, a company specialising in energy-efficient technologies, has partnered with Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation (KMRC) and Chennai Metro Rail Ltd, (CMRL) to provide solutions for smooth and efficient functioning.

At both the KMRC and CMRL projects, the installation of Danfoss Variable Frequency Drives has contributed to 15 per cent-25 per cent energy savings across various applications, the company said in a release.

Said Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss Industries Pvt Ltd, India Region, “Danfoss’ domain expertise in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning solutions (HVAC) for metro applications comes from years of experience having worked closely with metro projects both in the domestic and global markets such as Dubai, China, USA, Singapore etc. making Danfoss an ideal solutions provider.”

The first Danfoss Drives Solutions package of 400+ IP55 drives for Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. was commissioned in 2013 as part of Phase I of the project, wherein 100 percent of all Drives requirements for the project were fulfilled by the company.

Since then, Danfoss India has provided 500+ units of Variable Speed Drives Solutions to CMRL.

Through the course of the Danfoss’ project with Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation (KMRC) which commenced in 2019, over 80+ units of Variable Speed Drives Solutions have been delivered till date.

These Drives solutions are integral to various applications such as Tunnel Ventilation Fans, Trackway Exhaust Fans, Chillers, Pumps, Air Handling Units, etc. among several others.

Palanisamy Lakshman, Head – Danfoss Drives Sales, Marketing & Service, said “Danfoss has been associated with metro corporations since the beginning of the first metro project in India – Phase 1 of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). Since then, the association has continued to many more prestigious projects such as Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC), Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation (KMRC), DMRC – 1, 2 & 3, CMRL, etc. – to name a few. Today, Danfoss commands a 90%+ market share across various metro projects in India, due to our strong value propositions.”

The company said that its IP 55 Drives, provided for most metros in India, are highly customisable for tunnel ventilation applications typically required in metro applications.

The IP 55 Drives, according to the company, provide the best in-class energy performance index for metro stations and user-friendliness while providing optimal temperature control, comfort, and safety.

Further, these are also suited to the specific needs of the climactic and harsh environment conditions across India, particularly with regards to the wide variations in ambient temperatures and installation locations.
