Delhi, the capital of India, is a densely populated city counted among the four big metropolitans of the country. Like most other metropolitan cities high real estate prices in the heart of the city have seen Delhi’s residents have to settle for homes way beyond the suburbs in order to make ends meet. This has led to the average Delhite having to commute 20 kms just to get from home to his workplace making the Delhi Metro Rail a quintessential lifeline for the city.
The 2 million+ Delhites who travel in the Delhi Metro on a daily basis can now do so without worrying about a fire risk thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Vasu Infosec team
A project like none other where a simple fire could put a number of daily lives at stake as high as 2.7 million meant that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation chose to approach Vasu Infosec to ensure its safety. As the first step in the process, Vasu Infosec’s assessment team identified the most crucial junction which could turn into a bottleneck incase of a fire hazard. It turned out that a major point of connection where the Delhi Metro connected with several other modes of public transport, the Sarita Vihar Depot was at a high risk. The engineering team then immediately set about creating a plan to implement a fire safety system, they decided to use a two-pronged approach using both the sprinkler and wet riser systems. The installation of the project was carried out at a rapid pace to ensure no delays in the Metro project’s launch. On the day of the grand launch the Metro was able to boast of not just the most advanced communication and train control systems but also the best fire safety systems.
