Siemens provides electrification for Indian Railways’ longest rail tunnel

Siemens is privileged to have provided rail electrification technologies for a 42-kilometer-long stretch, including the longest rail tunnel (12.8-kilometers) at Pir Panjal range, on the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link. The project is part of the Jammu-Udhampur-Katra-Quazigund-Baramulla Railway line of the Indian Railways, the largest construction of mountain railway line since India’s independence, with a length of 345 kilometers and at a height of approximately 1,700 meters above sea level.

Siemens’ scope included the design, engineering, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 25kV overhead equipment and associated works.

Gunjan Vakharia, Head of Mobility Business, Siemens, said, “We are extremely proud to be associated with this project, which is of national importance. The installation team overcame challenges such as extreme temperatures and unexplored terrain to ensure a successful execution of the project. We would like to thank the Indian Railways for their continued trust and support to Siemens.”
