is a major step towards fulfilling our contract with Indian Railways. Together we will help modernise Indian Railways' fleet, significantly upgrade India's rail infrastructure and provide critical support for India's growing economy," Nalin Jain, President and CEO-APAC, GE Transportation said.
The new units feature an evolution series engine and an electronic fuel-injection system for improved fuel efficiency.
The locomotives are part of a USD 2.5 billion agreement signed in 2015 in support of government's public private partnership 'Make in India' programme.
The deal included an order for 1,000 locomotives, as well as the establishment of a new GE Transportation factory and maintenance sheds in India.

Chennai: Southern Railway has introduced seven three-phase alternating current (AC) EMU rakes with space to carry 20% more commuters, that save 30% more power due to regenerative braking and have quicker acceleration, for the Chennai suburban section.
However, railway officials are unable to use these rakes efficiently as only 40% of the motormen are currently trained to operate these rakes.
At the end of their daily trips, some of these rakes idle for 45 to 60 minutes on a regular basis, said multiple sources. As a result, every time a rake reaches

a terminal station like Chennai Beach, Central, Tambaram, Tiruvallur or Arakkonam, officials have to wait for a trained motorman to run the coach.
This idling is frowned upon in railway efficiency circles as it is sub-optimal usage of a costly asset like rolling stock. An official said the idling was worse on the Chennai Beach-Tambaram section, while it was not as bad on the Chennai Central-Arakkonam section, as the crew links had been worked out to ensure that an AC EMU-trained motorman was always available for the rake.
Officials said motormen have to undergo a five-day training program at the Avadi institute for operating these special rakes as they are different from the conventional direct current (DC) motor-run EMU trains. Earlier, a batch of motormen were sent to Mumbai for training, but it was a longer program and SR couldn’t spare them for that long. “Even in the current scenario, it’s difficult to manage as EMU specials are also being operated,” said an official.
For instance, in the conventional DC-motor EMU rakes, the motorman has to use the right hand on the accelerator and the left on the brake. In the new three-phase AC EMUs, the motorman has to push the lever up for accelerating and down for slowing down.
Compared to a dead man’s handle, a switch designed to be activated if the motorman dies or becomes unconscious while on duty, in the conventional rake, this one has a micro-touch switch for activating the handle.
“Now it has been decided to combine the AC EMU training with the refresher course,” said a senior official.
Every AC EMU rake has a capacity to carry at least 1,000 more commuters compared to the conventional DC rake. “In addition to fans, the modular roof-mounted forced air ventilation system supplies 16,000 cubic metres of fresh air every hour into the passenger area of the 12-car rake,” said an official.

Indian Railways has confirmed its acceptance of GE's 4,500-horsepower diesel-electric evolution series prototype locomotives, a statement from the US technology giant said Wednesday.
After successful testing on India Railways' tracks, the locomotives were handed over in February 2018, the statement read.
“The acceptance of these locomotives is a testament to GE's engineering depth and understanding of customer requirements. This is a major step towards fulfilling our contract with Indian Railways,” said Nalin Jain, President, and CEO-APAC, GE Transportation in the statement.

standard practice, the acceptance of the 4500hp locomotives came after months of reviewing key design aspects, documentation and a thorough validation of various parameters in US and India, said the statement.
The locomotives also completed additional reviews including oscillation trials and rating and performance tests.
The new units feature an evolution series engine and an electronic fuel injection system for improved fuel efficiency, as well as compliance with international emission standard UIC1.
The individual axle-control AC propulsion technology will improve hauling capability and decrease life-cycle cost. The locomotives also are digitally enabled for predictive analytics to increase reliability and availability, read the statement.
The locomotives are part of a $2.5 billion agreement signed in 2015 in support of the Government of India's Public-Private Partnership 'Make in India' programme. The deal included an order for 1,000 locomotives, as well as the establishment of a new GE Transportation factory and maintenance sheds in India.
Currently, there are 45 locomotives in India that are ready for inspection and acceptance by the Indian Railways.
GE's state-of-the-art Roza Maintenance shed in Uttar Pradesh is ready for operations and the construction of the train factory in Marhowra, Bihar is in advanced stages, the statement read, adding operations will begin in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Once fully operational, all locomotives built in Marhowra under the agreement will have 70 percent localized content.
