“From the inception stage, 65% of the energy requirement of Nagpur Metro is met from solar panels on the roofs of the metro rail, stations, depot boundary walls, depot shed, etc.14 MW solar power capacity has been installed in the first phase. The energy generated is added to the national grid and the power required is drawn from local sources. Also, procurement of materials and the project management was done on the 5D BIM (Five Dimensional Building Information Modelling) platform,” informed Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director of MMRC, as reported in The Indian Express.
