BEML manufactured EMU bound for TIRUTTANI

BEML LIMITED, the premier railcoach manufacturing Company, under the
administrative purview of Ministry of Defence, took up the challenging task of redesigning
the existing Corten Steel EMU (Electrical Multiple Unit) coach body with
more modern Stainless Steel Carbody design. The innovative design, developed by
R&D Division of BEML, was approved by RDSO (Research Development Standard
Organisation) and Indian Railways have placed a Developmental Order for design,
development and manufacture of 10 nos. of Stainless Steel EMUs. Each rake of SS
EMU consists of 9 cars. The first rake of 9 Cars designed and developed by BEML
have been cleared by RDSO and RITES (Rail India Technical & Engineering Services)
and have been successfully commissioned for trial run at Sealdah Division of Eastern
Railways, Kolkata.

The new design of SS EMU has been evolved for the first time in the country with
modern aesthetic look, comfortable seating and the interiors designed to be on par
sophisticated Metro Cars, thus making the SS EMU more comfortable, durable, safe
and easy for maintenance.
With this innovative product of BEML, Indian Railways plan for gradual replacement
of existing corrosion-prone corten steel EMUs with modern Stainless Steel
corrosion-proof EMUs in Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai & Chennai suburbs has become a
reality. BEML foresees a huge business potential for the newly designed and developed
Stainless Steel EMUs.
