To meet its rising demand of energy for train operations, the Indian Railways is actively considering setting up captive nuclear power plants. Talks are going on with Nuclear Power Corporation (NPC) for setting up captive nuclear plants to cater to the growing demand of power for running increased number of trains, said a senior Railway Ministry official in the elctrical department in Delhi. There are about 42,00 electrical locomotives operational and out of the total 65,000 km long rail route, 23,541 km has been electrified.
Last fiscal, the cash-strapped railways spent Rs 8,000 crore on electricity bill while its diesel bill was around Rs 15,000 crore. An MoU will be signed with the NPC for setting up plants after the finalisation of talks, said the official. Asked about the state where the plants could be set up, the official said it has not been decided yet but it can be considered in states like Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
