    India’s first CNG (Compressed natural gas) powered train was recently inaugurated by Railway’s Minister Suresh Prabhu flag off in Haryana at Rewari Junction.

    RE: India’s first CNG Powered Train


    The CNG Diesel Electric Multiple is base on dual fuel that is diesel and CNG.  The railways have modified the 1,400 HP engine to run on dual fuel-diesel and CNG -through fumigation technology. The train sets a milestone in the adoption of green fuel in India, and will reduce the consumption of diesel and the greenhouse gas emissions associated with it. this train is capable of running at a speed of 100 km per hour.

    At the beginning, the train will only consume 20 per cent CNG during the 81-km distance while the rest of the power will be derived from diesel.
