Jindal supplies stainless steel for RRTS project

The first trainset of India’s first Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) was recently handed over to the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). Jindal Stainless is supplying stainless steel to Alstom for developing technologically-advanced and state-of-the-art trainsets for this project.
Jindal Stainless will be supplying ~2000 metric tonnes of world-class 301LN stainless steel grade in 2J finish to Alstom for developing 210 trainsets under this project. Several components including sidewall skins, brackets, end walls, sole bars, cantrails, roofs, and under-frames are being developed using stainless steel. The RRTS trainsets will function at a speed of 180 km/hour and will reduce commute time between Delhi and Meerut by ~40%.
Stainless steel offers light-weight and high crash-resistance to the RRTS trainsets, thus making them energy-efficient. In addition, stainless steel has a high strength-to-weight ratio. As a ‘green metal’, stainless steel provides a low life cycle cost and is an optimum raw material for developing long-lasting sustainable solutions for modern railway infrastructure in the country.
Jindal Stainless is currently supplying high-strength stainless steel grades like 301LN and 304L in LT, MT & HT configurations for metro and railway coaches.
